MECHANICAL STABILIZATION OF A-4 SOIL BY BLENDING WITH A-3 SOIL

Two different types of soil, silty clay/clayey silt (A-4) and pit sand (A-3) were blended together in different proportions in order to improve their mechanical properties. Six different proportions were prepared and tested for compaction and California Bearing Ratio (CBR) values. The optimum blend percentage came out to be 50:50, where the values of maximum dry density in compaction and CBR were observed to be maximum.
