Abstract: Stabilization of clay soil has been carried out for improving its engineering properties of soil. To stabilize the clayey soil use Brick Kiln Dust of and waste Coir Fibre, an experiment is conducted to evaluate the properties of soil mixing with 10%, 20% &30% percentage of Brick Kiln Dust and Coir Fibre contents of 0.5%, 0.75% and 1.0% by weight of soil sample and then the tests are performed. Tests conducted for clayey soil mixed with Brick Kiln Dust and Coir Fibre are Liquid Limit, Plastic Limit, Compaction (OMC & MDD), and California Bearing Ratio (CBR). Flexible pavements sections were degined for non-stabilized and stabilized subgrades to be standard axles traffic intensities. The preamble of brick kiln dust and coir fiber is analyzed to improve the features of expansion subgrade materials and other sub-base materials. Also design the thickness of pavement when it is stabilized with optimized brick kiln dust and coir fiber. The results reveal that CBR value increased with increase of Brick Kiln Dust and Coir fibre. The soil stabilization treatment significantly improved the engineering properties of the soil, and reduced the pavement thickness and also cost of the project.
