Abstract :

 Soil stabilization is a process in which the engineering properties of the soil is altered and enhanced to increase its suitability for construction purposes. Stabilization of soil is commonly undertaken in the construction of air field, roads, foundations, land fills and embankements. The main objective of stabilization is to increase the soil strength. Clayey soil are most common in various region of India. Clay soil is having some undesirable properties like low strength and stability. It is essential to improve this properties to attain better performance. This study is to determine the strength behaviour of clay soil treated with wood ash, coir pith and rice husk ash. This paper describes a comparative of combination of this three stabilizing agents,So that the optimum percentage of the admixtures can be obtained to get maximum strength.The clay soil for the present study is collected from Thamarassery Taluk, Kozhikode District, Kerala. The effectiveness of these stabilizing agents can be determined, along with a comparative study
