Keywords:California bearing ratio, Compactive effort, Durability,, Laterite soil, Lime,, Textile effluent,, unconfined compressive strength
Industrial waste generated is a major contributor of total waste worldwide. The proper mechanism for management of these waste needs to be established, especially in developing countries. Therefore, this paper attempts to evaluate the influence of compactive effort on the strength characteristics of lime treated laterite soil mixed with untreated textile effluent. The study was carried out on the index properties, unconfined compressive strength (UCS) and California bearing ratio (CBR) in accordance with the procedures specified by BS 1377 (2) 1990, 1924 (2) and Nigeria General Specifications. Three compactive efforts namely; British Standard light (BSL), West African Standard (WAS) and British Standard Heavy (BSH) were used for the strength characteristics. The findings of the study showed that an increase in the values of lime-TE results in general increase in the strength tests. An improvement in the UCS for 7, 14 and 28days curing period was recorded at peak values of 1531.91, 2199.29 and 2560.48kN/m2 for BSL, WAS and BSH at soil-lime-TE of 4% lime/75% TE, 8% lime/75% TE and 8% lime/50% TE respectively. For the CBR (soaked), the peak values were recorded at 49.70, 71.13 and 97.25% for BSL, WAS and BSH at soil-lime-TE of 6% lime/50% TE, 6% lime/50% TE and 8% lime/50% TE respectively. Considering the resistance to loss in strength, the values were also peaked at 71.77, 81.74 and 60.63kN/m2 at mix ratios of 8% lime/100% TE, 6% lime/75% TE and 8% lime/25% TE respectively. On the bases of these test results, it can be concluded that the utilization of untreated Textile Effluent positively increased the strength characteristics of the lime treated soil, reduced environmental pollution and save construction cost.
