Accumulation of solid waste requires a large area for its disposal. Human hair fiber (HHF) a non- degradable matter is creating an environmental problem so its use in soil improvement can minimize the problem. Also human hair fiber available in abundance at a very low cost. The main purpose of this project is to understand and investigate the variations in the strength of the cohesive soils using human hair fibers (natural fiber) as a soil reinforcing material.

In this project, you need to mix HHF randomly with clayey soil samples and you need to perform a test for its engineering property (Strength) by performing CBR tests on a number of samples by using the different percentage of fibers and comparing the results with the non-reinforced soil. Fibers of different length and equivalent diameter should be used with an aspect ratio ranging from 295 to 500.
From the experimental result data, you need to plot various graphs for comparing no of samples in terms of their engineering property to determine the best sample.
From the test result, it will be revealed that the strength significantly improves with the inclusion of HHF and also prevents the sample from cracking. Moreover, an environmental concern is also included by utilization of waste human hair fiber materials and they can be made useful for improving the soil characteristics and to solve the problems related to the disposal of waste human hair fibers material.
