Abstract
Stabilization is defined as the alteration of the properties by chemical or physical means in order to enhance the engineering quality. Soil is the indispensable element of this nature there are constraints in using for construction activities to overcome that properties of the soil are to be improved. The use of agricultural bi-product (Bagasse Ash) is made to stabilize the soil. The various proportions of Bagasse ash were used i.e. 5%, 10% and 15% by weight of soil and tested for 0, 3, 7 and 28 days. The paper deals with the complete analysis of the changes in various soil properties such as Atterberg’s limits (Liquid limit, plastic Limit and Shrinkage Limit), Optimum Moisture Content, Maximum Dry Density, Free Swell Index, Differential Index, Unconfined Compressive Strength and California Bearing Ratio were studied. The test results indicate the increase in CBR by 42% and UCS by 52% for 5% replacement. Further increase in Bagasse ash increased soil plasticity hence reduction in strength.
