Soil-Industrial Effluent Interaction and their Engineering Behaviour

Abstract

Soil-Industrial Effluent Interaction And Their Engineering Behaviour

Rapid population growth and industrialization lead to the generation of large quantities of effluents. The typical swelling / shrinkage behavior is due to the basic mineral composition of montmorillonite. Hence the effect of certain industrial effluents on compaction behavior was presented in this paper.

The Soil-Industrial Effluent Interaction And Their Engineering Behaviour used in this investigation is classified as “SC” according to the I.S. Classification system. It is of a highly expansive nature as the Differential Free Swell Index is about 255 percent.

Proctor’s compaction tests are performed on the soil treated with Textile, Tannery and Battery effluents at different percentages from 20 to 100 percent in an increase of 20 percent. In order to compare the results of admixed soil, tests are also performed on untreated soil.

Conclusion

Soil-Industrial Effluent Interaction And Their Engineering Behaviour Civil Project Report Industrial activity is necessary for a country’s socio-economic progress but at the same time generates large amounts of solid and liquid waste.

The disposal of solid or liquid effluents, land-based waste by-products and or accidental spillage of chemicals during industrial processes and operations causes changes in the physical and mechanical properties of the ground in the vicinity of industrial plants.
