Study of Structures in Black Cotton Soil
In Civil Engineering aspects Black Cotton Soil is giving hazardous Problems to engineers. With the rapid
development in Soil improvement, construction technique and social need various constructions of structure are taking place.
The possibility of good construction sites to build structures on Black Cotton Soils is difficult due to their poor strength and
deformation characteristics. This study discussed Black Cotton Soil problems their remedies, precaution taken and covers
the guidelines to construct the structure in Black Cotton Soil.
