The objective of this project is to identify a natural fiber to enhance the shear strength and bearing capacity of a cohesive soil. This study includes a proposed protection method to increase the durability of the selected fiber, determination of the optimum reinforcement scheme in terms of fiber's content and length, and investigation of the reinforced soil through laboratory experiments on footing bearing capacity and slope stability analysis.
