Bearing Capacity of Stabilized Peat Column Using Hand Operated Cone Penetrometer

Md. Shahidul Islam and R. Hashim    

Abstract: The main objective of this study is to stabilize peat soil by deep mixing method using cement, sand, bentonite and calcium chloride as binder and to determine the effect on bearing capacity using proving ring hand operated cone penetrometer. Eight soil-binder columns have been constructed by mixing auger and prebored and premixing method using two different combination of binder. Bearing capacity of the columns has been evaluated by hand operated cone penetrometer after 1, 3, 7, 14 and 28 days of curing time. From the test results it was observed that bearing capacity of peat column increased considerably after stabilization.
