Abstract: In this paper, we analyze the geotechnical properties of the natural soft soil and its mixture with different nano
materials at different percentages by conducting different number of experiments. The main objective of our work is to
find whether the nano materials and their percentage level will increase the soft soil geotechnical properties or not. To
accomplish this process, initially the natural soil sample is collected and the different geotechnical properties of the
collected sample are computed. Then, the nano materials with different percentages are added to the natural soil sample
and obtained the corresponding geotechnical properties for the mixture soil sample. Subsequently, a mathematical model
is developed to find the optimal geotechnical properties value in different nano materials with different percentages. The
developed mathematical model shows the geotechnical properties levels of nano mixture soil for unknown experiments.
Finally, a fine tuning model process is conducted to check whether the nano material mixture of the natural soil will
increase its geotechnical property or not. In this way, our proposed technique finds the optimal geotechnical property
value for the unknown experiments and also produces an accurate result in fine tuning process. The implementation
result demonstrates the geotechnical properties results of natural soil and nano mixture soil under different experiments.
Our proposed technique shows that the geotechnical property values of the nano mixture soil are high compared to the
natural soil. Moreover, the developed mathematical model is better to find the optimal geotechnical property value for
unknown experiments.
