Abstract

The current experimental work's main goals are to investigate the basic qualities of BC soil and coir fibre, as well as to reduce construction costs by utilising naturally occurring coir fibres and industrial waste products.To determine the strength of BCS, different sizes of model footings of 0.05m are reinforcing to TCF resting on loose stratum.A comparison between TCF-reinforced BC soil and unreinforced BC soil under static load conditions. Blending with TCF in various proportions for different densities and experimenting with new chemicals or compounds that make coir fibre more water repellent can also be done. The full results of this study are concluded as for distinct settlements of footings carried by RDCFs based on the laboratory experiments results and observation gained owing to the addition of TCF to BC soil. B-footing depths of 0.2B, 0.4B, 0.6B, 0.8B, 1B, 1.2B, 1.4B, 1.6B, 1.8B, and 2B are the reinforcing depths for reinforced soils. The earth is impacted to a depth of 2 to 2.5 times the breadth of the footing, indicating that the size of the footing is growing.
