Abstract
The civil engineers must study the properties of soil, such as its origin, grain size distribution, and ability to drain water, compressibility, shear strength and load bearing capacity. The civil engineering proposes the soil is unboned (un-cemented) material. The foundation of structure is most important of entire structure. The foundation must have more strength to support the entire structure. The stability of the structure of depends upon the soil which one is used as the foundation. Therefore the sub-grade soil normally replaced with stronger soil which is not economical. In this project an attempt has been made to increase the soil strength by adding the various admixtures which are available like egg shell powder and coconut shell ash replacing the soil. In this project we had made an attempt to find out the comparative results of various strength increasing tests on laterite soil by using the admixtures bitumen emulsion and also egg shell powder and coconut shell ash. The admixture bitumen emulsion is added at 5%, 10%, & 15% proportions. Similarly egg shell powder and coconut shell ash are also added at the same proportions. The initial strength of the laterite soil is determined through various tests like Sieve Analysis, Plastic Limit, Liquid Limit, Specific Gravity, Compaction, Unconfined Compression, California Bearing Ratio and Direct Shear tests. The same tests have been conducted with laterite soil added with bitumen emulsion and laterite soil added with egg shell powder and coconut shell ash. The results obtained are then compared with initial laterite soil and laterite soil added with admixtures.
