In recent years, nano technology has been significantly implemented in geotechnical engineering, especially for soil remediation. Using this technology has improved soil resistance parameters and led to the stabilization of many problematic soils. Clay soils, due to their nature, have a large dispersion on the surface of the earth. The widespread dispersion of these types of soils in the site of structures, describes the necessity of studying and investigating new methods of improving and amending the resistive properties of these soils. This research is a review of the use of nanotechnology for the improvement of soil resistive properties by geotechnical researchers.
