    Abstract :

    The marine clay properties are changes significantly from wet and dry soil. It is called as expansive clay, due to changes of moisture content in the marine clay swell and shrinkage occurs. Acquire an increasing a number of various waste materials is becoming a bigger problem to the environmentalists. Fly ash is the one of waste material which is produced from the thermal power plants. From the point of this, to stabilize the properties of marine clay and decrease the quantity of industrial waste. The present experimental study has been taken into consideration. In this thesis observed the sequel of quarry dust and fly ash on the properties of marine clay. The observation were made from the experimental data is, obtained optimum value at exact 20% of quarry dust and 20% of fly ash. Static plate load test was conducted on obtained optimum percentages. The defamation and load bearing capacity of treated marine clay has been increased by 41.80% and 669% compared to untreated marine clay foundation bed.
