Optimization of Clay Soil Stabilization using Waste Plastic Powder

2020 International journal of recent technology and engineering  
Usage of plastic products, including polythene sacks, cans, containers and packages, etc., is growing every day. It further raises the quantity of plastic material waste. This contributes to numerous issues with the environment and climate. For several decades much of the waste generated today will linger in the atmosphere, posing a number of environmental problems. herefore, excess will be utilized successfully in any sector of technological advancement. Many by-products are being produced

By adding plastic wastes to the clay soil, we have to know about the changes in the strengths like California bearing ratio, free swell index, and Unconfined Compression test. The soil collected for the investigation is from the southern district of Tamilnadu, India. The different percentage of plastic powder was replaced to improve the soil property.
