    Abstract :

    Abstract- Civilization is always developed around the coastal regions, these are covered with thick soft marine clay deposits. This clay has less strength and possesses high deformation, low permeability and limited bearing capacity. Due to the poor engineering characteristics of these clays, they pose several foundation problems to various coastal structures. As this Marine clay is widely occupied in costal corridor, it is inevitable to constructing pavements and foundations on them due to the population density. This clay, because of their specific Physico-chemical make-up, subjected to volume changes with the changes in their ambient environment. By reinforcing the industrial waste to this soil the constructional properties can substantially enhance. Therefore, the present experimental work aims to investigate the efficacy of Ferric Chloride in stabilizing the marine clay thereby improving its strength and swell characteristics. Total cost of construction is reduced and also providi
