  • California bearing ratio (CBR) of samples of both reinforced and unreinforced soil, standard procedures were followed.
  • The mixture of soil and jute fiber was placed in a CBR mold.
  • This testing process helps to determine the strength and stiffness capacity of the soil.


In this work, cohesion-less asphalt geo-material supported with multi-facets of geo-support as jute filaments have been contemplated. The current work is completed on the unreinforced soil and jute fiber supported soil to research the strength and firmness limit of asphalt geo-materials utilizing California bearing ratio (CBR) test. The quantity of layers, ideal profundity and arrangement of the geo-support in geo-material are studied. The implant profundity of jute fiber at various optimum depth (D) , i.e., D/2, D/3 and D/4 in single, twofold, and significantly increase layers have been upgraded utilizing CBR values. A clever idea of firmness limit alongside entrance factor is acquainted with assess the strength of the unreinforced and jute-supported geo-material. The experimental outcomes exhibit that remembering jute fiber for single, twofold and triple layer builds the solidness limit of the dirt at the ideal profundity of D/4. The liquid limit at shifted input boundary fluctuates from 0.378 to 0.682 at most extreme entrance factor which shown an 80.42 % upgrade of solidarity in asphalt geo-material. The result of the current work gives a knowledge answer for the strength improvement in cohesion-less soils for dike, subgrade, and asphalt development advances.
