Abstract:Soil stabilization has become the useful solution to treat the weak soil to achieve the required engineering properties. Soil stabilization by adding materials such as cement, lime, bitumen, etc. is the effective method for improving the geotechnical properties of soil which have been applied for many years now. This research is intended to study the effect of adding nanomaterials (nano-copper and nano-silica) on geotechnical properties of soil especially Atterbergs limit, compaction characteristics, unconfined compressive strength, CBR value and swelling pressure. Nanomaterials were mixed with soil in three different percentages (i.e. 1, 1.5, 2.5 % and 0.3, 0.6, 0.9 % by weight of soil). Based on obtained results, in order to reach the maximum increase in strength parameters, the optimum nano-copper and nano-silica content occur at 1.5 % and 0.6 %..

Keywords: Stabilization, Geotechnical Properties,Nano-Cu, Nano-Si, CBR, Swelling Pressure.
