Abstract –Soil stabilization aims at increasing or maintaining the stability of soil mass and chemical alteration of soils to enhance their Engineering Properties of either subsoil layers before laying any structure on it. Infrastructure and industrialization serves as a back bone for a country’s economy. However due to rapid industrialization there exist a problem in the form of waste accumulation and subsequent problems due to their disposal & effects of waste. This journal deals with the comparative study of soil stabilization. Unsuitable sub grade soil requires stabilization to improve its properties. Industrial waste is used as raw materials where it can no longer be reused in the industry and it is termed as industrial waste. In this study, attempts were made to improve the Engineering properties of Highly Swelling Soil using Steel slag as a byproduct of steel industry, lime, sodium silica. The stabilizers were added singly or combined at a proportion of 1%, 2%, 3%, 4%, and 5%. This project is planned to determine the properties of specific gravity, sieve analysis, proctor compaction test, Unconfined compressive strength, shear test and CBR test. From the results optimum moisture content of admixture for improvement is suggested and could improve their properties.

Keywords – Plasticity Index, Unconfined Compressive Strength, California Bearing Ratio, Sodium Silicate, Soil Stabilization, Asbestos, Lime
