Soil is very important in civil engineering constructions. The poor engineering properties of the local soils may present many difficulties for construction and therefore need to improve their engineering properties. The problem of disposal of fly ash will also be sorted upto some extent. The Soil is mixed with fly ash in varying in varying percentage extent of 20-80% and properties of soil are studied. The optimum value of fly ash content in soil is 30% and the coir fibre content in the rage of 0.5-1.5% with different lengths.
