Altering the geotechnical properties by the addition of scrap rubber as a binding material in soil can be one of the method for soil stabilization. The production of scrap rubber tyres has been increased over the years in India. The scrap rubber material being left as a waste material can be later on used in soil so as to increase the properties of soil. Thus, it reduces the impact of rubber on environment. In current scenario the demand for infrastructures is increasing day by day. In some

We are mixing the scrap rubber material in the powder form and chips form. These materials are mixed in different proportions and find the variation of these proportions in soil is identified. It is low cost method for altering the geotechnical properties of soil.
