Abstract

Soil stabilization has become a major issue in construction engineering. Due to rapid growth of population and urbanization, there is tremendous increase in construction activities may lead to shortage of land for construction of buildings, roads, etc. The land available may not be suitable for construction activites. The soil may be black cotton, clayey, and loamy. This existing sites not suitable for construction because These soil has less bearing capacity and stability. The present experiment work briefly describes the suitability of local available Stone Dust(SD).The objective of this study to improvement of properties of soil by using of Stone Dust(SD) obtained from stone quarry.It will minimizethe environment harzord also.Different percentage of stone dust mix with black cotton soil. The effect of Stone Dust(SD) on Liquid Limit, Plastic Limit, Plasticity Index, Dry Density, Optimum Moisture Content (OMC) and California Bearing Ratio(CBR) values is tested in laboratory.
