In this project work, we observed how the fine- grained soil properties affect by saline water. In the laboratory, several tests were conducted. The test was conducted with and without Sodium Chloride concentration. By adding Sodium chloride concentration to the soil, the liquid and plastic limit decreases with increases its concentration. As we know for the classification of soil, the liquid limit was an important factor. So in this project work, we study how salinity affects liquid limit and how it is carried out for future work purposes. Also, the plastic limit is affected by saline water, so plasticity index varies. Here we have discussed the result and the relative graphs such as Liquid limit vs NaCl concentration on High plastic soil, Plastic limit vs NaCl concentration on High plastic soil, OMC vs NaCl concentration on High plastic soil, MDD vs NaCl concentration on High plastic soil and also compared the results of distilled water.

Keywords : Liquid limit, Plastic limit, Standard Proctor, Saline water.
