Improvement of Black Cotton Soil with Cement & Flyash Treated With Terrasil

Authors(3) :-Anand Kumar Raghuwanshi, Saurabh Bhargava, Pallavi Gupta

BC soils or expansive clays soils associated with so many problems as volume shrinkage, expansively, low CBR, swelling etc. Fly ash is freely available as it is waste product obtained from power plants, it is less hazardous to environment and as a good stabilizer material, and fly ash counteracts the problem of pollution. Flyash. Mixed with cement and commercially available chemical terrasil, shows improved results for the geotechnical properties of black cotton soil associated with cement, flyash mix treated with terrasil. Pavement design on BC soil in which cost reduced to 16.25% when treated with BC soil fly ash, cement, treated with terrasil.
