Abstract

Marine deposits are very soft and highly compressible. Its sensitivity ranges from insensitive to medium sensitivity and essentially inorganic in composition. Marine clay is usually found in and around the coastal region. In the present study, the soil samples were collected from Kaup, Udupi District, and Karnataka. Efforts were made to improve the Geotechnical properties of marine clay using ground granulated blast furnace slag (GGBS) which is a bi-product of the steel plant. In the present paper, marine clay is replaced by GGBS (0%, 10%, 20%, 30%, 40% and 50%) by dry weight of soil and extensive laboratory study is carried out to study the compaction and unconfined strength properties before and after stabilization with GGBS. It is found that there is considerable improvement in the compaction characteristics and strength.
