Abstract: The Population Is Increasing Day By Day So That No-Of Construction Activities Are Increasing Daily Which Turning The World Into A Concrete Jungle. The Need For Land Is Increasing For Construction Purpose. Black Cotton Soil Is Belonging To One Of The Major Soil Deposits In India. The Nature Of The Black Soil Is Highly Expansive. Its Nature Varies According To Moisture Present In The Soil. It Will Expand In The Presence Of Water And It Will Contract In The Absence Of Water. Due To This Nature, It Becomes A Very Danger To Construct A Structure In This Type Of Soils. It May Leave Severe Damage To The Foundation And Superstructure. Many Stabilization Methods Are Improved To Overcome This Problem. This Experimental Study Was Done One Black Cotton Soil To Improve Its Characteristics By Adding Admixtures Like Quarry Dust And Lime. Various Properties Like Liquid Limit, Plastic Limit, Maximum Dry Density, Optimum Moisture Content And California Bearing Ratio Were Studied By Adding Admixtures To The Black Cotton Soil. Experimental Study Shows An Effective Increase In Properties Of Black Cotton Soil. With The Help Of Studying Different Literature Papers, It Was Found That Black Cotton Soil Which Is Replaced With Quarry Dust Above 10% Shows Some Increase In Properties. Whereas For Lime It Is In Between 2% To 6%.
Keywords: Black Cotton Soil, Quarry Dust, Lime, California Bearing Resistance.
