Journal Title:International Journal of Trend in Scientific Research and Development

Soil is a unique natural material and the properties of soils can be altered by adding stabilizing agents such as lime. Lime is the oldest traditional stabilizer used for soil stabilization. Lime is one of the several products that can be used in the improvement of the engineering characteristics of soils. This research presents the effect of lime on engineering properties of cohesive soil. In order to identify and classify this soil, at first physical properties of soil are determined. And then, mechanical property tests are conducted. Next, lime is added to natural soils. Lime contents are selected as 4%, 6% and 8% by weight of natural soils. The plasticity index decrease with increasing the percentage of lime content. Soil is mixed with selected lime contents at their maximum dry density. In cohesive soil, the more the lime content, the more the cohesion. The lowest value of cohesion is 0.59 kgcm2 at lime 4% and it increases according to lime content. The percentage of lime increased, CBR value is also increased.
