Plastic As Soil Stabilizer
Use of plastic products such as polythene bags,bottles, containers and packing strips etc. is increasing day by day. As a result amount of waste plastic also increased. This will leads to various environmental problems. Many of the wastes produced today will remain in the environment for many years leading to various environmental concerns. Therefore it is necessary to utilize the wastes effectively with technical development in each field. Many by-products are being produced using the plastic wastes. This paper presents the details of studies, conducted by various researchers on the possible use of waste plastic for soil stabilization. The results of the studies indicate that by adding plastic strips in soil; shear strength, tensile strength and California bearing ratio (CBR) value of the soil increases.
Stabilization of soil by plastic
The use of plastic products such as plastic bags, bottles, containers and packaging tapes etc. is increasing day by day. As a result, the amount of plastic waste. This will lead to various environmental problems. Much of waste produced in the environment for many years, leading to various environmental issues. Therefore, it is necessary that the waste can be used effectively with the technical development in every area. Many products are made with plastic waste. This paper presents the details of several researchers on the possible use of plastic waste for soil stabilization studies conducted. The results of the study show that the addition of plastic strips on the floor; Increased shear strength, tensile strength and California Bearing Ratio (CBR) of the soil.
SUMMARY: Soil stabilization is any process that so improves the physical properties of the soil, such as increased shear strength, resilience, can be made suitable materials of cement, lime and fly ash as controlled waste, phosphogypsum, etc. by compression or the use of additives costs for the introduction of these additives has increased in recent years opened the door wide for the development of other types of soil additives, such as plastic, bamboo, etc. effectively used this new technique of soil stabilization to meet the challenges of society, to the waste, not to reduce the production of valuable materials from waste makes sense. The use of plastic products such as plastic bags, bottles, etc. is increasing day by day leads to several environmental problems. Therefore disposal of plastic waste without environmental hazards has become a real challenge. Therefore, the use of plastic bottles is as a soil stabilizer is a useful, since there is no shortage of good quality soil for embankments. This project involves the detailed study of the possible use of plastic bottles waste for soil stabilization. The analysis has been filled by testing the cargo floor panels with layers of plastic bottles with sand and halved bottle in the middle and a third tank positions arranged reinforced executed. Comparing the test results showed that the cut centrally positioned bottles were most effective in increasing the strength of the soil. The optimum proportion of the plastic strip on the bottom was found by California Bearing Ratio test and use this percentage of plastic, plate load test was also performed. The size and content of the shredded waste plastic bottles have a significant impact on the improvement of the soil strength.
soil stabilizer for improving the stability or soil bearing capacity through the use of controlled compression, metering and / or the addition of a suitable stabilizing or mixing. The basic principles of soil stabilization are: x? Evaluation of the properties given soil. x? Decide property is missing bottom and select effective and economical method of soil stabilization. x? The design of the stabilized soil mix stability values and the expected shelf life.
Stabilization, the shear strength of the soil and / or raising taxes shrink swell characteristics of the soil, improving the ability of a support part note on sidewalks and foundations. Stabilization can be used to treat a wide range of substrate materials, the granular materials expansive sound. Improvements achieved by the most common stabilization floor better gradation, the reduction of the plasticity index or swelling potential and increased durability and strength. In wet weather the stabilization can also be used to provide a working platform for construction operations. These types of improved soil quality are known as soil stabilization. The advantages of soil stabilization are the highest values of resistance, low plasticity, low permeability, reducing the thickness of the pavement, removal of excavation, hauling and material handling, and import basic assistance compression techniques, allows access to all times and within the project sites. The determinants associated with soil stabilization may be moisture content, the end use of the soil structure and ultimately the cost-benefit be provided.
As good land is scarce and its location is becoming increasingly difficult and costly, the need to improve the soil quality by always important soil stabilization. Soil stabilization with raw plastic bottles is an alternative method to improve the paving base. It can change the properties of the soil used in the construction of road infrastructure significantly improve.
The use of plastic products such as plastic bags, bottles, containers and packaging tapes etc. is increasing day by day. Disposal of plastic waste without environmental hazards has become a real challenge for our society. Therefore, the use of plastic bottles is as a soil stabilizer is a cost effective and profitable use, since a shortage of good quality soil for embankments and fills. Therefore, this project is the challenges of society, not the amount of plastic waste, the production of valuable materials from waste makes sense to reduce the creation of a sustainable society.
