Influence of Rice Husk Ash on Geotechnical Properties of Soft Clay
Keywords:Compaction characteristics, Consistency limit, Rice husk ash, Unconfined compressive strength
This paper studies the influence of rice husk ash as soil stabilizing agent. A series of laboratory test was carried out for different percentage of soil-rice husk ash mix. The various test conducted was standard proctor compaction test, consistency limit, and unconfined compressive strength test. A significant change in the index properties of soil was found out. The strength of soil increases, optimum moisture content increases and maximum dry density decreases. The test results reveals that the rice husk ash can be used as a soil stabilization material.
