To Enhance Soil Stabilization by Using Plastic Waste
Keywords:Plastic bottles, CBR, Compaction, Triaxial shear test
Soil stabilization could be a method of improvement of the physical and Engineering properties of soil, like increasing bearing capability, shear strength, etc. which may be utilized by dominant compaction or addition of appropriate blends like cement, lime and waste materials like ash, waste Plastics & bottles etc. Recently, the utilization of plastic product, like polythene (PE) bottles and polypropylene (PP), has been considerably increased, which can cause several environmental problems. Therefore, it's vital to seek out strategies to manage these waste materials while not inflicting any ecological hazards. We use these strategies is to use plastic wastes as a soil stabilizing material. We think that this new technique of soil stabilization may be effectively want to meet the challenges of society, to cut back the quantities of waste, manufacturing helpful material from non-useful waste materials. The impact of the stabilization was evaluated through polishing off normal laboratory tests. In our project we perform soil tests like water content, Liquid limit test, plastic limit test, specific gravity of soil & Triaxial shear test etc. Plastic like searching luggage is employed to as reinforcement to perform the CBR studies whereas commixture with soil for rising engineering performance of sub grade soil. Plastic strips obtained from waste plastic were mixed indiscriminately with the soil. We performed UU- triaxial test on soil at different percentages and get various conclusions accordingly, test was allotted on indiscriminately strengthened soil by varied proportion of plastic strips at varied percentages of plastic in proportions.
