There are different methods for the improvement of soil. In the civilization of Mesopotamian lime stone was used as construction material by mixing it with weak soil. Also, in some the ancient civilization people also use materials such as straw, hay etc… these are mixed with the soil with low strength and used as bricks. One of the methods is using of the plant fibre to even engineers increased the ground soil of the constructions of ziggurat of Babylon, Great wall of China by using similar plant fibres.
Skyfi Labs gives you the easiest way to learn and build this project.
Bamboo is used in this project as it is plenty available to us. And it also causes some problems too when the bamboo starts growing in a certain area the forests and fields surrounding it and the plants which are present are not grown fully because of the occupancy of the area and the light shielding by height of the bamboo tress will dominate the growth of other plants. It is also difficult to remove once it is grown, we can’t just stop the growth of them by removing the shoots. So, by these reasons we must use them effectively.
In this project the bamboo is collected form any source and used as soil materials. The bamboo fibre, which is available after its fulfilment of purpose is used. This bamboo contained of many different sizes and mainly as finely divided powder. In order to perform the experiment, the bamboo is mixed with loose soil and following test can be performed.
