Abstract
The TerraZyme performance is evaluated by analyzing the changes in index and engineering properties for various stabilized soils classified according to IS Classification System (ISCS). The effect of enzyme dosages, curing period, and soil type on the properties of stabilized soils are investigated. The study also tries to correlate the effect of soils characteristics such as particle size distribution, consistency parameters, activity number, etc., on the degree of enzyme-based soil stabilization. The study attempts to showcase the maximum improvement for different treated soil groups that can be achieved for various index and engineering properties. It also expresses the comparative improvement status of various soil groups for the properties under consideration. The study also analyses the optimum enzyme doses and the duration of curing required to reach maximum improvement in various treated soil groups. Compared to all the soil groups, the CI-Soils exhibited the most prominent improvement in consistency limits, the maximum dry density, and Optimum Moisture Content, achieving a higher degree of stabilization. Clayey soils have shown maximum improvement in UCS values with curing duration. However, these soils require a higher curing duration to reach the maximum UCS value. MH-Soils attained maximum average percentage CBR value at comparatively smaller enzyme doses. The results of the finding are highlighted and discussed. The findings will be helpful for soil stabilization decisions using TerraZyme.
