Mukesh A. Patel, H. S. Patel


Soil stabilization is a process to treat a soil to maintain, alter or improve the performance of the soil as a construction material and very important to minimize the cost of earth work in case of unavailability of good earth at nearby source. The use of Stabilizing agent, for sub-grade with weak soil, improves strength parameter such as cohesion and improvement in cohesion leads to strengthening of embankment. This will ultimately lower down the road construction cost. This paper specifically addresses about soil stabilizing agent which are used to stabilize weaker soil to improve subgrade quality. In this paper review on use of different stabilizing agents such as lime, fly ash, cement, rice husk, geo-grid, chemical stabilizing agents etc.is done to analyze effect of stabilizing agent for application for stabilization of soil of Gujarat region.
