Abstract: Soil stabilization may be defined as the alteration of the properties of an existing soil to meet specified engineering requirements. The main properties that may required to be altered by stabilization are strength, volume stability, durability and permeability. Eventually, all the structure rest on soil foundation where the main objective is to increase the stability of soil and to reduce the construction cost. Now-a-days, the utilization of waste product with soil has gained attention due to the increasing problems of waste management. In India, 44.7 million ton of e-waste was generated as per 2016 survey. E-waste was generated at the rate of 2.2 million ton per year. Usually, e-waste should be managed by 5Rs approach. In our project, e-waste is reused as soil stabilizer. The soil sample was collected from Darasuram, Thanjavur District. This soil was classified as well graded soil from particle size distribution curve. Different dosage of e-waste i.e., 1%, 2% and 3% were used to stabilize the soiThe performance of e-waste stabilized soil was evaluated using index and strength properties tests namely: specific gravity, sieve analysis, liquid, plastic and shrinkage limit, standard proctor test and California Bearing Ratio. From the result, the CBR value is increased up to 2% beyond this percentage the value is decreased.
Keywords: E-waste, soil stabilization, SPC and CBR.
