Influence of Random Reinforcement on Strength Properties of Fly Ash

Behera, Jyoti Ranjan (2015) Influence of Random Reinforcement on Strength Properties of Fly Ash. MTech thesis.



Soil reinforcement is a successful and solid procedure for expanding the quality and strength of soils. The system is utilized today as a part of a mixture of uses running from holding structures and banks to sub level adjustment underneath footings and asphalts. In correlation with methodically strengthened soils, arbitrarily appropriated fiber reinforced soils display a few favorable circumstances. Arrangement of arbitrarily disseminated fiber strengthened soils speaks to soil adjustment by admixture. Discrete filaments are essentially included and blended with the dirt, much like concrete, lime, or different added substances. In current study strength analysis of fly ash reinforced with two types of fibers separately, is done. Recron fiber and Coir fiber are used as reinforcement of different length and quantity varying from 0.2 % to 2 %.Thus reinforced fly ash samples are prepared and tested. Based on the findings of the present investigation the main conclusion arrived was Both Coir and Recron fibers are effective in increasing the strength of the compacted fly ash. This also modifies the stress-strain behavior of the mass.Increase in fiber content by mass causes increase in strength. In case of using coir fiber as reinforcement material, when the length of the fiber is increased, there is an increase in strength as well. Samples prepared under modified proctor conditions tests to show more strength than the samples prepared under standard proctor conditions at same fiber content.
