Present research papers focuses to strength low plastic soil using deep cement mixing technique through model study. Soil column length of 10cm, 20 cm and 30cm was used with varying degree of saturation as 60%, 80% and 100% of OMC to determine settlement characteristics, unconfined compressive strength, modulus of subgrade reaction and modulus of elasticity of raw and treated soil. Cement dosage for UCS test and model plate load test was decided as per guidelines provided in FHWA 13-046 design manual and CDM-LODIC method respectively. Method of deep mixing the soil with cement was adopted from theory given by Filz et.al. (2005). The results depicted the cement deep mixing methodology based on soil particle-cement particle interaction with varying degree of saturation proved the efficacy for low plastic soils and maximum reduction in settlement was observed for 60% degree of saturation for column length of 20 cm. Modulus of elasticity was validated with provisions of FHWA whereas load carrying capacity of soil-cement column was validated with Broms empirical equation.
