Fiber reinforcement is one of the new emerging soil reinforcement technique. Absence of weak plane is major advantage of fiber reinforcement. It is similar to the reinforcement provided by the plant of roots. Randomly distributed fibers provide interlocking and friction resistance to resist the movement of soil particles, which significantly increase the load carrying capacity. Now a days fiber reinforcement is used in the embankment, slope stabilization, pavement application. For efficient application of fiber reinforcement, proper understanding of effect of different parameters like fiber parameters and soil parameters on the behavior of fiber reinforced soil is required. In this paper brief review of the research and development for fiber reinforced soil to understand the effect of different fiber parameters based upon the experiments is presented.
