Topic : Stabilization of Clay Using Rubber and Fibre Material

Authors: R. Deepiya || P. Pooja,N.Revathy, Dr. V. Stephen Pichaimani

Abstract:The objective of this paper is to study the effectiveness of soil stabilization using waste rubber and fibre material. The coir fibre is a natural material obtained from coconut which helps in improving sub grade soil strength. The strength of the soil can be improved by the use of rubber tyre chips. The process of soil stabilization helps us to achieve required properties of soil needed for construction of structures. Shredded rubber tyre passing through 75 micron I.S Sieve and coir fibres of varying length from 0.5 to 3 cm of varying percentage is used. The percentage of rubber used are 4%, 6%, 8% and 10% and the percentage of coir fibre are 0.25%, 0.5%, 0.75% and 1%. From the test results, it is found that the optimum moisture content(OMC) decreases with increase in addition of rubber, CBR and UCS values are also increases. It is also found that, on addition of these waste materials in pavement, the strength of soil is increased and thickness of pavement is reduced. By the use of these waste materials, the hazards in environment are highly reduced and quantity of stone aggregate in pavement is reduced. From this paper it is concluded that, by the addition of waste materials, clay soil is stabilized, it is found to be environment friendly and cost effective. .
