Different soils have different properties and hence behave differently in similar condition. So, when the reinforcements are introduced in the soil they may have a positive result for desired characteristics in one type of soil and negative in another. In this paper we will be comparing black cotton soil and lithomargic clay characteristics on reinforcing with randomly mixed nylon fibers and uniformly placed nylon mesh.
