The Black Cotton soils occurs mostly in the central and western parts and covers approximately 20 of the total area of India. Because of its high swelling and shrinkage characteristic, The Black Cotton soil have been a challenge to the highway engineers. The Black Cotton soil is very hard when dry, but loses strength completely when in wet condition. It is observed that on drying, The Black Cotton soil develops cracks at varying depth, It is a well known fact that water is the worst enemy of road pavement, perticularly inexpensive soil areas cause of road failure that water has got easy access into the pavement. A Literature review has been presented that has given me the somewhat direction and point of investigation in the different correlation methods of soil properties. It has also given the effect of various soil properties on CBR value. Experimental Work shows the different types of experiments to be performed to evaluate various soil properties. These properties are Grain Size Analysis, Liquid Limit, Plastic Limit, Plasticity Index, Shrinkage Limit, Maximum Dry Density, Optimum Moisture Content, CBR value. It also shows the summary report of results of various experiment performed on the number of soil sample. Now we are added some material that improve the soil strength so we can used in road pavement consruction. we added GGBS Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag material to stabilize the black cotton soil we are added suitable proportion of GGBS material in the soil proportion are 3 ,6 ,9 and 12 and to check at what proportion we get best result. So we started performing test and analysis the result. GGBS Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag has usually used as stabilizer for developing the engineering properties of soil. GGBS is a byproduct generaed during manufacturing of iron and steel. The GGBS is environmental and ecofriendly by product. GGBS improve the engineering properties and stabilized the soil. It also reduce the cost of pavement. Vedwala Khushbu M | Priyank H. Patel | Vishal N.
