Expansive soils occupying almost 3 lakh km2 in the Indian subcontinent found to be highly problematic due to their extensive swelling and shrinkage nature. This rapid volume change leads to upliftment of foundations, differential settlements, heaving, rutting, etc. on the overlying structures. Concerning with the above problems an effective, economical and long-term method lime stabilisation was selected. In this work it is attempted to study the effect of curing period on the strength behaviour expansive soil treated with lime and fly ash by conducting triaxial shear (UU) test for 0, 3, 7, 14, 28 days with some twenty different proportions.
