Paper Title
Soil stabilisation using rice husk and lime sludge
  Rishabh Tiwari,  Ashish Kumar Yadav,  Umang

Soil having poor bearing and shear strength needs stabilization to improve its engineering properties, hence making it suitable for construction purposes. In this study rice husk and lime sludge is used for stabilization as these are being locally available and in this way minimizing the amount of waste to be disposed to the environment reducing pollution. This study reveals around the reinforcement of soil by rice husk and lime sludge and the comparison between engineering properties before and after stabilization. The main objective of this study is to evaluate the effects of rice husk and lime sludge on the strength of disturbed soil by carrying out various tests on two different soil samples. Disturbed samples are collected from two different construction sites i.e. ATS, Greater Noida and Botanical Garden, Noida respectively. In laboratory testing, liquid limit, specific gravity along with grain size distribution is carried out for the classification of soil. For different percentage of rice husk and lime sludge the Proctor Compaction test was carried out. Further at California bearing ratio test is carried out for different fractions of rice husk and lime sludge. The above experimental results with and without rice husk and lime sludge are compared to obtain optimum quantity of rice husk and lime sludge required to stabilize a weak soil along with the inference about effect on bearing capacity and shear strength.
