Abstract:
ABSTRACT The black cotton soil has a properties of is expansiveness, swelling and shrinkage. Due to these types of the properties behavior of clayey soil or black cotton soil has been changed drastically. Based on observation we can say that the changes are due to reaction with water. Also the large amount of black cotton soil is available all around the world which leads to a waste of land for construction uses. So we have tried to resolve this problem by stabilizing black cotton soil by waste material marble powder and brick dust. We have stabilized a black cotton soil by replacement of 40 % of soil to the both stabilizing agents marble powder and brick dust. The combination has been used of 60 % soil + 40% stabilizing agent. The analysis includes the comparison of clayey soil after stabilization with the available soil’s properties. The comparison includes total properties consideration by carried out compaction test, atterber’s limit test, linear shrinkage test, and swelling test on stabilized soil. From the above mentioned test It’s been observed great decrement in swelling and shrinkage of soil. Keywords:- black cotton soil, expansiveness, swelling, shrinkage, stabilization
