Soil stabilization of expansive soils with various admixtures of the techniques to mitigate the problems possessed by expansive soils. Chemical stabilization of expansive soils involves additives such as cement, lime, bitumen’s, calcium chloride, fly ash etc.. soil stabilization is referred to as procedure in which a special soil is proportional or added or removed to a natural soil material to improve one or more of its our local area expansive soil are more available because of agriculture and sea shore. The strength and durability properties of expansive soils can be improved by replacement of RHA and waste cement. The aim of our study is to improve the properties of expansive soil by using RHA and waste cement as replacement material separately.RHA reduces the environment pollution and also huge amount is available in our country. The replacement level of RHA was taken for this study as 2%,4%,6%,8%,10%,12% and replacement of waste cement was taken as 5%,10%,15%,20%,25%.
