Abstract

The strength of the sub-grade, the caliber of the subbase and base course, the surrounding conditions, and the characteries of the soil utilized are some of the variables that might impact how long a road lasts. Because expansive soil swells and shrinks in response to variation in moisture content, roads constructed on it are especially vulnerable to early deterioration. Buildings with black cotton soils have experienced different settlement due to regular alternating swelling and shrinking. Adding stabilizers to poor soil is the most common way to improve its quality. The utilization of waste components to enhance the expanding soil’s characteristics is a recent discovery in soil stabilization. In this article, consequences of coffee husk ash with xanthan gum on soil improvement are examined. In this work, xanthan gum and ash from coffee husks were employed to Replace some of the black cotton soil. The percentages of xanthan gum were 0.50% while the amounts of coffee husk ash were 2%, 4%, 6%, 8%, 10 and 10%. The behaviors of soil specimens were measured using the liquid limit (LL), compaction test, CBR test, specific gravity test, and plastic limit test (PLT).

Keywords: black cotton soil, coffee husk ash, soil stabilization, CBR test, liquid limit, and xanthan gum.
