The stabilization of Dune sand is of high prominence since it can be used for various building works and highways, airfields etc. The dune sand has nil cohesion and thus a low compressive strength. The analysis reported herein presents a study of stabilization of dune sand with Porcelain Waste as admixture. All the California Bearing Ratio tests were piloted at maximum dry density and optimum moisture content as attained from Standard Proctor Test. Direct shear tests were also executed. The main objective of this experimental study was to obtain an cost-effective stabilized mix of Porcelain waste and dune sand so that largely and cheaply available dune sand be sand be used for various construction purposes.
