Paper Title
Geotechnical Properties of an Expansive Soil Stabilized with Quick Lime
  Harshil Bhatt,  Manisha Meena,  Dr. Ajay Bindlish

Expansive soils have the tendency to undergo volume change behaviour and cause huge uplift pressures and upheaval of structures based on it due to presence of moisture. In most of the cases, practically it is not possible to avoid expansive soil and replacement of soil by any material or soil, in a larger area of expansive soil, hence stabilization processes are required to stabilize it. A lime is most useful chemical stabilizing agent. In this study, expansive soil was taken from Borkheda, Kota, Rajasthan and stabilized with quick lime. The expansive soil was treated with different percentage of quick lime 2,4,6,8,10 and specimens were cured for 3days. For the improvement of engineering properties of soil following tests were performed:- Index properties, Standard proctor, Unconfined compression strength. The tests were performed on various percentage of lime. The optimum percentage of lime is determined on the basis of differential free swelling index test. The aim of this study is to economically improve the geotechnical properties of expansive soil such that the structure built, increase the strength of flexible pavement for efficiently withstand applied loads, reduce the thickness of pavement and improve the durability of pavement.

Keywords- Expansive Soil, Quick Lime, Standard Proctor, OMC, MDD, UCS.
