In India, the rapid increase in population growth coupled with an increase in vehicles posed the reduction of available land where the highway infrastructure development especially on maximum available weak or soft soil. Insecure soils make huge issues for asphalts and henceforth needs to be investigated scientifically initially in the laboratory. In this study, at first the examination of normal soil is done to assess the physical and engineering properties as indicated by Indian Standard (1498 – 1970) by coordinating exploration focus tests and to evaluate the adjustment in properties by the utilizing Nano chemical terrasil stabilizer of 0.021% percent dose to be used as a part of the asphalt configuration for the economy. A chemical named Terrasil was utilized as a stabilizer and it was utilized at fixed dosage i.e. 0.021% by dry aggregate weight of soil test according to the criteria’s laid down by Zydex Industries, Vadodara. The pilot study is carried out to determine the improvement of soil properties and consequently, correct outline systems of the asphalt layers based upon the sub-grade quality are worked out as per the guidelines of IRC code and thereby comparative saving cost per km is shown.

Keywords: Soil Stabilization, Clay soil, Terrasil, OMC-MDD, UCS, CBR.
