Soil stabilization deals with physical, physicchemical and chemical methods to ensure that the stabilized soil service its intended purpose as a pavement component material. Soil stabilization is the process of altering the qualities of soil (Index & Engineering) in order to improve its performance. The black cotton soil various civil engineering application will be for example pavement designs, structural designs, structural buildings likewise. The black cotton soil is an expansive soil. That is the reason it can observe water and change the volume. Not only changing volume, it can also show swelling and shrinkage. This is the reason structures will damage. The failure due to settlement of soil, if soil settles foundation support will be sinking, the structure will be fail. In this present experimentation is with Bagasse Ash (BA) and Brick Dust (BD). The experimentation focused on physical properties of soil, compressive strength test, unconfined compressive strength test, California bearing ratio test and free swell test. In this experimentation with and without adding additives, compare with those two randomly adding percentages 5%, 10%, 15% and 20% brick dust. Bagasse ash is contently 4%. These experimentations shows clearly difference of the strength of soil. And this experiments result concludes bagasse ash and brick dust is good stabilization materials for black cotton soil.
