Abstract:

The main objective of this study is to investigate the use of fiber materials in geotechnical applications and to evaluate the effects of polypropylene fibers and brick powder (demolition brick masonry waste) with various percentage of 0.2%,0.3%,0.4%,0.5% polypropylene fiber and 20%,25%,30%,35% brick powder added making the soil stabilize and rigid . it is increase in shear strength and density of soil. in this project we are planned to investigate various experiment like specific gravity , sieve analysis , proctor compaction test , unconfined compressive strength and CBR test to increase the strength of soil properties The results obtained are compared with the four soil samples collected from two different regions and two different type of soil The inferences are drawn towards the usability and effectiveness of fiber and brick powder reinforcement as a replacement of soil for deep foundation or raft foundation, as a cost effective approach.
