Within the confines of developing countries the utilization of soil in building establishments is a prolonged exercise; its importance has remarkable existence presently too. Particularly lateritic soils have been used to provide economical housing in various forms. laterite are a typical source of foundation complications of buildings, roadways ,dams and railway lines in west coast of India as it is main underlying soil. Microstructure of soil is very important for studying both mechanical and physical properties of soft soil. Physiochemical environment and composition influences the microstructure of soil .mineral contents can be considered as the crucial feature that controls shape, size and various charecteristics.varriations in properties of soil is due to their intrinsic differences in configuration and regularity at the time of their genesis. For improved infrastructural development of any country an increase in soil utility is a must for engineering works. Designers and contractors should realize the relationship with varying foundation soils and the infrastructures. The paramount cause for the roadway failure and structure crumble is the poor geotechnical and mechanical properties of soil. Thus a detailed and thorough sampling along with qualitative analysis (Scanning Electron Microscopy and EDAX) of the underlying lateritic soil is crucial for right valuation of any soils.
