Abstract: The present thesis investigates the improvement in the bearing capacity of well-graded sandy silty clay with thin sand layer on top and placing geotextile at different depths. Model tests were performed for a square footing resting on top of the soil to establish the load versus settlement curves of unreinforced and reinforced soil system. The test results focus on the improvement in bearing capacity of wellgraded sandy silty clay and sand on unreinforced and reinforced soil system. The results show that bearing capacity increases significantly with the increased number of geotextile layers. The bearing capacity for the soil increases with an 36.42% using one geotextile layer. In addition, capacity for sand underlain silty clay for two, three and four number geotextile layer were 46.43%, 90%, 122.14%, respectively. The finding of this research work may be useful to improve the bearing capacity of soil for shallow foundation and pavement design for similar type of soil available elsewhere.
