Abstract: The foundation should have sufficient strength to support any land based structure. The soil surrounding the foundation plays a very important role. The strength of soil should be maintained according to the loading conditions. The soil reinforcement process helps to attain the required engineering properties in soil for the construction purpose. The necessity of enhancing soil properties came to the light from the beginning of construction work. Soil reinforcement was used in India in 1970’s but proper techniques and skilled labour was not available that’s why in India ancient methods for soil reinforcement was using, show the soil reinforcement lots lost its importance. Recently, the demand for infrastructure, raw materials and fuel is improving show the process of soil reinforcement rising its importance up again. According to the better research, materials and equipment, soil reinforcement is the cost effective and popular method for improving the soil properties. Here, in this paper, soil reinforcement analysis completed with the mixing of soil with the powder produced from burning of rice straws fibers (parali) by an specific method. The main motive of this analysis is to find out the utilization of waste rice straw fiber materials in foundation construction without open burning of waste so we can reduce the pollution which create by the open burning of rice straw in the fields.
