COMPARATIVE STUDY OF SOIL WITH AND WITHOUTBAMBOO REINFORCEMENT IN SUBGRADE OF FLEXIBLE PAVEMENT

Abstract

Abstract: - This study dealswith the comparative study of soil subgrade with and without bambooreinforcement of flexible pavements. For this purpose various tests areconducted to find the mechanical properties of bamboo. The bamboo speciesconsidered are Meshi and Dhopil. The mechanical properties of bamboo consideredunder study are tensile strength, compressive strength & flexural strength.The aim of these tests is to explore the suitability of bamboo as a reinforcingmaterial for sub-grade of pavement. The type of soils used are black cottonsoil & Laterite soil. Standard Proctor test is performed on soils to obtainOMC at MDD. Using results of Standard Proctor test, California Bearing Ratiotest (CBR) will be performed using the bamboo species and soil specimen.

From comparative study of CBR values, wewill came to know the load bearing capacity of soil with and without bambooreinforcement. The IS codes considered in this study are IS 6874-2008 forbamboo, IS 2720 (part-16)-1979 & IRC 37-2001 for CBR test.

Keywords: - Soft clay, reinforcement, flexural, tensile,compressive, CBR.
