Effect of Nano Materials on Properties of Soft Soil

Sanusha Babu | Shyla Joseph

Abstract: In construction, soil is a significant part of building process. The behavior of structures depends on the properties of the soil on which they are constructed. Structures constructed over soft soil are associated with problems regarding bearing capacity and settlement. Stabilization techniques are adopted to enhance the soft soil behavior and performance of foundation overlying weak soil. This paper aims to study the effect of various nano materials (nano Titanium Dioxide and nano Flyash) on the properties of soft soil. The nanomaterial is mixed with soft soil at various percentage (0 %, 0.5 %, 1 %, 1.5 % and 2 %). The optimum percentage of nano materials is determined. The consolidation settlement behavior and CBR value was studied at the optimum percentage of nano materials.
