Piping is a subsurface type of disintegration which includes the expulsion of subsurface soils in pipe like channels to a break exit. It principally happens in generally loose soils with high porousness. Henceforth, successful countermeasures are required and soil reinforcements as support strategy is valuable in this application. Past examinations have reasoned that piping resistance of soil increments, when blending short fibres to successfully confine soil particle movement. In this venture an exertion is made to utilize bountifully accessible, characteristic waste Human Hair Fibers HHF as soil fortifications and the impact of the same when discretely and randomly distributed on the piping conduct of soil are inspected. The experimental tests for piping using human hair fibres were carried out for different fiber contents 0.5, 1.0, and 1.5 and fiber lengths 2,3,4,and 5 cm . The critical hydraulic gradient and piping resistance for each soil sample were calculated and compared to find the most effective combination of fibre length and content.
