Many geotechnical structures are constructed on weak and loose soil deposits with deeper foundations. Thus for safe design this formation needs improvement before construction starts. A popular technique to improve such soil condition is to use rice husk ash and sugar cane straw ash in the soil. This technique is now being used all over the world in various applications such as embankment, foundations, road pavement, bridges, buildings etc. The soil properties need to be improved by using rice husk ash and sugar cane straw ash as admixtures. For this reasons a detailed investigation of the behaviors of the soil-rice husk ash and soil-sugar cane ash therefore became essential. In the present study it is aimed that the usage of rice husk ash and sugar cane straw ash with lateritic soil to improve the properties the soil and to study the influence of addition of materials like rice husk, sugar cane ash. It is planned to add admixtures at a dosage of 2%,4%,6%&8% of total weight of soil and the index properties and engineering properties are to be determined the will be compared with the normal soil which is un stabilized.
