Study a Behaviour of Expansive Soil with 6% Lime and Crusher Dust

Harshil Bhatt | Raaj Sharma | Dr. Ajay Bindlish


Abstract: Expansive soil which have a property to expands when it contacts with moisture. This is one of the major reason of failure of engineering structures. These property of expansive soil may be improved by adding or mixing the different types of admixture or fibre or stabilizing agents. In this research paper, the engineering properties of expansive soil is tried to improve by using crusher dust with 6 % Quick lime. In this experimental work, the 6 % Quick Lime is mixed with different percentage of crusher dust in expansive soil. The following tests were conducted for determine the performance of 6 % Quick lime with Expansive soil mix specimen Standard Proctor Test, Unconfined Compression Test (3days soaked), California Bearing Ratio.
