Abstract

Soil stability is one of the most challenging issues in Geotechnical engineering practice. Scarcity of suitable
land and unavailability of good quality construction soil lead to the implementation of various Ground Improvement
Techniques. Among the various ‘GRIMTECH’ fibre reinforcement is achieving more focus in ground engineering. In
present study work various tests were conducted on treated and untreated soil as Compaction, CBR, UCS etc. The
influence of additive like fly ash and AR glass fibre (12 mm) on expansive soil of south Gujarat region was highlighted. It
has been established in this project work by experiments conducted on the soil sample by using fly ash (0%, 5%, 10%,
15% and 20%) and glass fibre (0%, 0.25% and 0.50% by weight of dry soil). The output of this study work is to evaluate
the combine effect of fly ash and glass fibre with expansive soil is beneficial in soil modification.
