Stabilization of Dredged Material Obtained from Floodspill Channel [Srinagar], for its Potential Use as Subgrade Material for Design of Flexible Pavements

Showket Ahmad Sheikh [2] | Gul Afrooza Jan

Abstract: Efforts in this study were primarily aimed at in making use of dredged material for potential use as road subgrade in the design of flexible pavements. It was decided to evaluate use of polymer based additives for stabilization of such soil. Soils are strong in compression but weak in tension. The current practice is to modify the strength of the soils by addition of polypropylene fiber to meet the design specifications.
