Soft Clay soil when subjected to large Overburden pressures and traffic loads , settlement may occur during constructions and differential settlements at later stages. The use of natural fibers such as coir as soil reinforcement is expected to accelerate the process of consolidation by permitting pore water pressures to dissipate easily when subjected to overburden pressures. The use of vertical drains will shorten the length of the horizontal drainage paths and thus reduces post construction…
