Abstract: Abstract: Engineers are often faced with the challenge of constructing with or on soils with poor strength that could pose challenges during the construction phase and service life of the facility. For better results, the geotechnical properties of the soil have to be improved. This study focused on the effect of flax fiber on the geotechnical properties of the soil. The soil samples were obtained from borrow pits within the University of Ibadan, Ibadan, Nigeria. The geotechnical properties CBR (California Be…
