Soil can make or break the structures. The ability of any soil depends on its properties. Soil stabilization in a broader sense, incorporates various methods employed for modifying the properties of a soil to improve its engineering performance. This project deals with the usage of micro silica for stabilization of a hilly soil sample. An attempt has been made to stabilize the soil sample with an addition of 10% of micro silica. The properties of soil have been tested for its shear strength, compressive strength, etc. And the results have been found to be productive.
Keywords: casagrande apparatus, direct shear test, compressive strength test, specific gravity.
