This paper discusses the behaviour of Coir, Jute, Sisal and Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) blended needle punched fabrics in withstanding load as an application as geo textile material. The nonwoven fabrics were prepared through Needle punching technique. The fibers were blended in different composition in order to obtain four different fabric samples such as Coir/Jute/PET (CJP), Coir/Sisal/PET (CSP), Jute/Sisal/PET (JSP) and Coir/Jute/Sisal/PET (CJSP). The load withstanding capacity of the soil was analyzed by inserting the four different fabric samples. The comparison was made with the standard soil sample which had no fabric insertion. The study revealed that the soil inserted with fabric samples showed improved load withstanding capability when compared to the standard one. Whereas among the four different samples good withstanding capacity was observed in Jute/Sisal/PET (JSP).
