    Abstract :

    In a structure, the plinth and the foundation is the most important part as it transfers the load coming from the super structure and ground it to the earth. This plinth and the foundation are to be filled by some filling materials. So the selection of this filling material has to be done such that it is economic, easily available and transfers the load without failure. Here in this project we took different samples of the commonly used filling materials and other materials that can be used as filling materials and compared their properties, economy and the availability to find the best filling material that can be used.
