Abstract

The Pond Ash sample was collected from the ash pond site of Raj ghat thermal power station, Delhi, soil was collected from NIT campus, Srinagar and the lime was procured from the open market in the form of quick lime. This lime was then mixed with pond ash, by weight (= 9%) (Gupta et al, 2013).Further, in the present work an experimental program was carried out to characterize the materials and strength tests were performed to study the behaviour of pond ash mixed with lime; the results shows that in the presence of moisture, pond ash chemically reacts with lime at ordinary temperature and forms cementations material which is attributed to the increase in strength of pond ash. Numerical analysis was performed using the FEM based software PHASE2 (Roc science). Results divulge that use of full length of geogrid covering whole width of embankment increases the critical strength reduction factor (SRF) of embankment at steeper slope inclination. Also, the application of either geogrids layers or pond ash-lime mix layer, results in safer designs in comparison to unreinforced pond ash embankment.
