        Case Study Soil Bearing Capacity in Black Cotton Soil Case Study Site Location Solapur Road, Keshwapur, Hubli Purpose: To procure soil samples for assessing the physical properties, which will help in design and mode of construction of proposed foundation. To determine the nature, thickness and variation of soil strata in the region. Black cotton soil with % fibres with 8% cement gives optimum value with respect to unconfined compressive strength and also it can be seen from the sttress – strain curve the inclusion of fibres changes the behaviour from brittle to ductile. Black cotton soil with % fibres gives optimum.

Black cotton soil is treated with stabilizer and compacted to a thickness of mm and Plate Load test is conducted on stabilized and non-stabilized black cotton soil in laboratory in a model box.

      cm. in the open and beneathstands of pine differing in age from 25 to years. He determined the moisture content of the soil during each month of the year and expressed it as a percentage of weight of oven-driedsoil. His results show that the forested areas contained considerably less moisture than the open areas during all four seasons of. As I mentioned in last week's ICM newsletter article "How to minimize soil moisture loss," it is important to know your soil moisture status prior to working your field to select the best tillage management plan. Several methods can be used to evaluate soil moisture in the field for this purpose or for moisture evaluation during the growing season.

SOIL-MOISTURE CONSTANTS AND THEIR VARIATION Walter M. Broadfoot and Hubert D. Burke Southern Forest Experiment Station "Constants" like field capacity, liquid limit, moisture equiva­ lent, and wilting point are used by most students and workers in soil moisture.

These constants may be equilibrium points or other valuesCited by: Introduction. Soil moisture in semiarid areas plays an important role in ecological hydrological processes, including evapotranspiration, infiltration, runoff, and erosion [1, 2].Maintaining a high level of soil-moisture content (SMC) can improve the capacity of ecological systems to conserve water [3, 4].Variations in soil moisture can be highly influenced by plant-soil interactions [].Cited by:   Soil moisture affects various hydrological processes, including evapotranspiration, infiltration, and runoff.

Forested areas in the lower western Himalaya in India constitute the headwater catchments for many hill streams and have experienced degradation in forest cover due to grazing, deforestation and other human activities. This change in forest cover is likely to alter the soil moisture Cited by: 9.

The seasonal variation in soil water storage to a depth of m was mm, 65% of which occurred below 1 m. The wet and dry season evaporation rates were estimated to be mm/d and mm/d, respectively, but for a month after fire, before regrowth started, the Cited by: 40 to 60% of the Black cotton soil (BC soil) has a size less than mm.

At the liquid limit, the volume change is of the order of to % and results in swelling pressure as high as 8 kg/cm 2 / to 10 kg/cm 2. As such Black cotton soil (BC soil) has very low bearing capacity and high swelling and shrinkage characteristics. Chemical compositions of black cotton soil are listed in table-2 below- Table 2: Chemical compositions of black cotton soil.

Property Value 1 pH value >7(Alkaline) 2 Organic Content – % 3 CaCO3 1- 15% 4 SiO2 55% 5 SiO2, Al2O3 3- 5% 6 Montmorrilonite Mineral 50%. Black cotton soil consists of clay minerals like.

Accurate prediction and characterization of the spatial distribution and temporal variation of soil water is indispensable to optimize the use and management of land within dry areas, which suffer from limited arable land and water resources. The objective of this research is to examine the effect of hillslope position and characteristics on soil properties and variation of soil moisture in an.

Black cotton soils for the study were derived from Indrasagar Rockfill Dam, Polavaram, Andhra Pradesh (India) from a depth of 1m, m and meters.

Basically the black cotton soil has fine-grained clay particles which cause a massive change in volume with change in moisture conditions, i.e. it swells excessively when wet and shrinks during dry period.

Hence black cotton soil is also known as expansive soil. Please note all black cotton soil is not expansive and all expansive soil is not black.

Abstract-Stabilization of Black Cotton Soil (BC soil) is studied by using Lime and Fly ash. BC soils are highly clayey soils (Montmorillonite clay mineral). The moisture changes in BC soils, compressibility and plasticity nature can be greatly improved with the addition of Lime and Fly ash.

This paper. Color influences the rate of soil warming in the spring and cooling in the fall. Dark soils, irrespective of moisture content, absorb more heat than do the more reflective light-color soils (Oke, ).Soils of higher moisture content, being darker, absorb more solar radiation (Fig.

), but warm more slowly than drier apparent anomaly arises from the high specific heat of water. swelling and shrinkage phenomenon in the black cotton instability inherent in black cotton soil affects the stability of roads and buildings in Adamawa State. 4) It was found that the following strategies can improve the stabilityofbuildings and road constructions in the study area where black cotton soil is.

Water table in the areas of black cotton soils is deep hence it is the rain water and storm water which is to be prevented from coming into contact with black cotton soil of the active zone.

The profile characteristics and the temporal dynamics of soil moisture variation were studied at 26 locations in Da Nangou catchment ( km 2) in the loess area of moisture measurements were performed biweekly at five depths in the soil profile (0–5, 10–15, 20–25, 40–45 and 70–75 cm) from May to October using Delta-T theta probe.

Black Cotton Soils and the Vetiver system I was faced with the problems of black cotton soils in the early 50s in Australia while working with the Soil Conservation Service.

Overnight, a heavy storm had wiped out a large area of a farmers wheat crop and fence line leaving gullies several meters deep. The following precautions are generally adopted while building structures on black cotton soil.

To limit the load on the soil to tonnes/ sqr. if water is liable to to find an access to the foundations, the limit of loading should be restricted to 4, kg/ sqr. The soil moisture standard deviation, CV, and skewness were calculated using a set of ground measurements collected each day, within the time span of 1–3 h, separately in each field.

Soil moisture measurements from different fields or different sampling dates were not mixed to. The properties of the soil to retain water also one of the factors affecting moisture content in soil. The way to determine this moisture content is to conduct a moisture content experiment by oven drying the soil.

There is other way to determine the moisture in soil such as using the soil moisture sensor. This method is easier and faster. Black soil holds more moisture and available for a long Tamil Nadu Black soils have high pH ( to 9) and are rich in lime (%), have low permeability.

The soils are with more cation exchange capacity ( m.e./ g). black cotton soils are problematic soils. To achieve desired properties of soil for construction purpose these black cotton soil must be treated.

To improve the properties of black cotton soils so many treatments are there. Stabilization using some industrial waste is the one method for improving the properties of black cotton soil.Single storey building (clinic) to be constructed on black cotton soil. Guidance required on adequate foundations.

Foundations will be required to carry m of mm brickwork and small roof load (galvanised roof). Water level not known. Assumed that black cotton soil is to a depth that can't be excavated.

Building plan 5m x 8m. What should be provided in terms of foundations?properties of black cotton soil stabilized with flyash (FA). Chanuhan Rajiv and et al () has studies the strength improvement of soil treated with lime and flyash mix for durability criteria.

In case of lime – fly ash and soil mixes maximum dry density decreased and optimum moisture content increase with increase the lime content. With an.
