Abstract

Black cotton soil that occupies nearly 20% of the area in India is a problematic soil. It is also called expansive soil or swelling soil, which have the tendency to increase in volume when water is present and decrease in volume when water is removed. The volume change may cause many problems in under construction structures. In India, the area covering the expansive soil is nearly 20% of the total area and includes almost the western Madhya Pradesh, parts of Rajasthan, Bundelkhand region in Uttar Pradesh and parts of Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Karnataka. The swelling soil of India are commonly known by the name black cotton soil because of their color and for growing cotton. Annually waste of million tons are produced across the country, which leads to disposal problem as well as adds to health risks. Utilization of such industrial wastes and their subsidiary products as alternatives to construction materials may contribute to preservation of environmental and minimize their adverse effects on environment. In this present study, crumb rubber is used as the waste to combine with the soil so that the properties of black cotton soil were investigated in with addition of alccofine. The physical and index properties of soil which were already measured were compared with those of the experimental specimens (crumb rubber and alccofine).
