ABSTRACT Natural fibres such as jute were the forerunners of the man-made fibres used for centuries for making ropes and for manufacturing burlaps, sacks, hessian and carpet backing. But the use of jute products in civil engineering is relatively widespread for such purposes as sand-bags for concrete curing ,soil enrichment and protection. . Reduction of carbon foot print in constructions is currently attracting global attention warranting innovations in construction technology with stress on ecocongruity. In this context increasing use of eco-concordant materials made of natural fibres to the extent feasible in constructions has assumed significance. The Earth Reinforcement Is An Ancient Technique And Is Demonstrated Abundantly By The Nature In The Action Of Tree Roots. This Concept Is Used For The Improvement Of Certain Desired Properties Of Soil Like Bearing Capacity, Shear Strength, California bearing ratio and Permeability Characteristics Etc. The Concept And Principle Of Soil Reinforcement Was First Developed By Vidal (1969), By Which He Demonstrated That The Introduction Of Reinforcing Elements In A Soil Mass Increases The Shear Resistance Of The Mix. Our project is Investigates The Use Of Jute Fibre As Soil Reinforcement Material. Our project mainly comprising the comparison of properties of two different clayey soils is carried out with and without reinforcement. Jute is the natural fibre which is used in our project as soil reinforcement. Key words: Jute geo-textile, reinforcement, shear strength, dry density, CBR , permeability , settlement.
