Review Study on the Strength Characteristics of Clayey Soil with Latex Treated Coir Fibre

Akhila D Rajesh


Abstract: Natural fibres like sisal, bagasse, banana fibre, and coir from coconuts can be used to reinforce polymers. Composites made of biodegradable, natural fibres are environmentally friendly. Due to variations in water content, clayey soil is prone to significant volume changes (swelling and shrinking). The clayey soil's general characteristics include high compressibility, poor bearing capacity, and weak shearing strength. The bearing capacity and shear strength of treated soil are increased with the use of natural fibres. They are environmentally friendly and biodegradable. The natural extract rubber latex was utilized to preserve coir and boost its longevity. Due to their advantages, such as high strength with very little weight and recyclable nature, the use of latex treated coir composites has increased. This paper discusses the review of literature on the effect of the strength characteristics of clayey soil in conjunction with latex treated coir fibre.
