Flectro-osmosis and Prefabricated Vortical Drain (PVI)) with surcharge are Iwo common methods is soil stabilization and this report is the preliminary research done to study the comparison between these methods on Kuolinite soil stabilization. A series of experiments will he conducted during the research period to investigate the effect of electro-Osmosis,PVD and electro-osmosis with PVD to the soil water content, shear strength, rate of settlement, Liquid and Plastic Limit,. The experiments will he conducted on disturbed sample in a elect ro-osmosis box. The controlled parameters in the experiments are voltage applied, electrode distance and duration of experiment conducted. Through this research it shows electro-osmosis is 1. and 4.2 times more effecttive than PVD with surcharge for stabilizing kaolinite soil in term of reducing moisture content and increasing shear stress.
