Soil Stabilization by Utilization of Hypo Sludge and Lime

Authors(2) :-Ankit Kumar, S. S. Gupta

Soil stabilization is the process to improving the geotechnical properties of soil. In various countries like India road network are growing up each year for transportation facilities. In the design of road construction site engineers faces the problem of low strength of soil, due to which settlement and failure of road pavement occurs. For improving the strength of soil pavement Hypo Sludge and Lime can be utilized to the soil. In present studies a series of laboratory experiment performed to determine optimum percentage of these two additives. 6% Hypo Sludge or 8% Lime is observed optimum mix of additive for soil stabilization.
