Abstract: The tumble down behaviour of super structure and substructure is caused due to the problematic soil which is more prone to shrink-swell process. In this event to contrive, a substitute which is naturally available has been blended with virgin soil. The basic Engineering properties has been studied which shows more positive results towards Atterberg’s Limit. The mould is embossed with the soil with lime at different proportion of 0 %, 2%, 4% and 8 %. The strength of the soil was studied with help of unconfined compression test. For 8% lime, UCC value is 2250 kPa in 28 days which shows the formation of cementitious material. An attempt made in this paper is to show the firmness of soil and lime.
Keywords: Lime, Atterberg`s Limit, Unconfined Compressive test.
