Title: An experimental study on PET bottle mattress as reinforcement on fly ash fills.
Date of Commencement and Period of funding: 01.07.2018 – September, 2020
Amount (Rs.) : 6,75,000/-
Funding Agency : DOM, Banglore
The primary study aims to prove that the behavior of fly ash subjected to vertical loading with varying size of the footing plates and to examine compression behavior of plastic bottle mattress by varying the ratio of diameter of cell aperture to aggregate size and also to decide the ratio of diameter of plastic bottle filled with aggregate to width of the footing for achieving highest possible stability and reliability under vertical loading.
