The title for this Final Year Project (FYP) is "Electrokinetic effects on kaolin soil". Kaolin soil is a white clay mineral that has relatively low strength. In this Final Year Project, the electroosmosis will be applied to the kaolin soil to improve the characteristics of the soil. It will focus in the strength of the soil. Electrokinetics is the study of the motion of particles and chemical transformation between two electrodes that result from or produce an electric potential difference (voltage). Electroosmosis involves water transport through a continuous soil particle network from anode to cathode. Kaolin soil was taken from the Greatpac Sdn. Bhd. Factory, Bidor, Perak. The test that have been conducted in the first semester is the moisture content test, liquid limit, plastic limit, vane shear, sedimentation by hydrometer analysis. This test was conducted to study the physical characteristic of the soil. The result that was obtained from the test shows the same result as others kaolin soil from other place. There was two type of experiment that had been conducted using different amount of load (lOkPa, 20kPa and 30kPa) without applying the current and also applying the different amount current (10mA, 20mA and 30mA) with 20kPa of load. This experiment is to study the result of the electrokinetic effect to the kaolin soil. From the analysis that had been done from the result shows that there were some improvement of strength to the kaolin soil after applying the electrokinetic method. There is not much increase in strength but the experiment proves that there were some findings to the experiments.
