This report assists the remedy selection process by providing the best methodology in conducting the electrokinetic method in term of stabilizing kaolinite slope. The reports also discuss the objectives of this research and the way how to run the testing or experiment from the model which is specially design for testing purposes.The objectives of this study are to determine the effectiveness of the electrokinetic method for the purpose of soil treatment. Some of experiments were conducted on the kaolinite soil such as sieve analysis, Compression test for soil strength and vane shear test. All those testing were intended to establish the properties of the kaolinite soil. The experimental work was done using the model which specially fabricated. The dimension of the model work is 9" X 16" in the box shapes consist the slope of kaolin. Several set of laboratory testing have been done to ensure that the soil properties was the same with a real kaolin properties and to ensure it is suitable to use in test. Three factors were considered in this testing which is moisture content, shear strength and the current flow in the soil. From the result obtained, it was found that electrokinetic method was shown some improvement in the desired factors. Overall, the study on Electrokinetic Stabilization of kaolinite slope was observed to be effective as the method capable on increased the strength of the slope. From the analysis, it also found that the effectiveness of the electrokinetic method depends on the voltage, period of testing and also the arrangement of the cathodes and anodes along the slope. However, the thorough study and research should be made for more findings in the future.
