Abstract: Our newly proposed APCRDA area most of the surface is occupied by black cotton soil. On the black cotton soil various civil engineering applications will appear for example pavement designs, structural buildings likewise. Black Cotton soil is an expansive soil. That is the reason it can absorb water and change the volume. Not only changing volume, it can also show swelling and shrinking. This is the reason structures will fail. The damage due to settlement of soil, if soil settles foundation support will be sinking, then structure will be fail. Many problems are recorded with the Black Cotton soil, to overcome the problem civil engineers and geotechnical engineers ate found many techniques. The present experimentation is with Bagasse Ash (BA) and Brick Dust (BD). The experimentation focused on physical properties of soil, compressive test, Shear Strength tests, and Swell Pressure test. Do the experimentation with and without adding additives, compare with those two randomly adding percentages 15%, 20%, 25%, 30%, 35% Brick Dust. Bagasse Ash is contently 10%. This experimentation shows clearly difference of the strength of soil. Experimentation can conclude Bagasse Ash and Brick Dust is good stabilization materials for black cotton soil.
