Abstract – It is a well-known fact that the black cotton soil having stability issues due to its high swelling and shrinkage characteristics. The Rapid growth of industries of marble produces hazardous marble dust. India is a second highest country in production of sugarcane. From this sugarcane after the extraction of juice around 0.62% Ash generated. The aim of research is to study the influence of this waste marble dust and bagasse ash on strength of cement stabilized black cotton soil. from the laboratory investigation 10% OPC by the weight of dry soil gave the most desirable results for maximum dry density and optimum water content. This OPC content was replaced by marble dust and bagasse ash in dual combination from 2% to 10% by the weight of dry soil. The proctor’s compaction and unconfined compression tests were conducted.
