Abstract

Soil is a curious material. Which materials are not useful for human life, that type of waste materials such as rice husk, lime stone ash, marble dust ash fly ash, wood ash, may used to soil stable. Flues of biomass contains an important amount of CaO therefore, the substitution of unslaked lime as a binder for silt and clay soil stabilization by wood ash seems to be reasonable way of wood ash utilization. Mixing of such material will gain the physicals as well as chemicals properties of soil. Soil properties to be increased are CBR value, shear strength, liquid properties of soil. Soil properties to be increased are CBR value, shear strength, liquid limit, compressive strength, and bearing capacity. Plasticity index was 27% reduced and increased CBR and strength 25 to 45% and 35 to 50% that result are investigated in the basis of successful implementation of wood ash utilization as a binder for clay stabilized in practice.
