This study deals with the effect of addition of nano-Colin on some properties of the soil compared Properties obtained from tests carried out on samples. characteristics were obtained from tests conducted on normal sandy soil samples with those obtained from tests performed on the same samples after the addition of nano Colin them. Was a standard proctor test record on the sandy soil used samples (replacement) and we got the laboratory maximum dry density value, After that we have implemented a sand cone method for in situ density and compaction of which we got a coefficient before the addition of nano-Cullen and show us that compaction factor ratios ranging from 95.3 to 96.8% of the value of the laboratory maximum dry density. After mixing the material nano Colin sandy soil in a certain way and at rates ranging from 3- 4 g / m3 of sand were carried sand Cone method experience of on them for compaction factor become clear to us increase the value of density in situ at a rate ranging from 15-20 percent of what it was before the addition of nano-Cullen . The results of testing the effect of nano-Colin on samples that have been. decrease value ratio blanks from 0.62 to 0.56 of the soil blended nano-textured Colin.ankhvd substitution layer thickness used 1.0 m to 0.5 m at a rate of 50% after the addition of nano-Collen. A significant reduction of the value of the economic cost per cubic meter was observed case and found that it reduced by 15%, including the price of the material used and the cost of all tests conducted in the laboratory of soil mechanics and foundations , Faculty of Engineering in Qena - South Valley University - Egypt and field tests were also within the college of engineering Qena. The results showed the compaction nature of soil get increase compaction factor and stress characteristics with adding nano materials.
