Need for locally produced building materials is developing in third-world nations as a result of the increased demand for new roads and apartment units brought on by a growing population.. Over the years, the availability of conventional material has not been sufficient to meet the demand of growing population. However, using conventional methods and procedures would require significant financial outlays in order to create a vast network of roadways. According to Road Note 31 (TRRI, 1977), the values of UCS for both BSL and WAS were insufficient to stabilise the commercial range of the OPC. For base courses of pavers, the UCS value of the BSH compaction, however, can be acceptable. The OPC/ALCCOFINE mix provides a long-term benefit in terms of strength increase, as seen by the 28-day curing period UCS values that were attained. The values of UCS significantly increased from their initial conditions.. The 28 days curing period UCS produced a peak value of 2616kN/m2 at 30% pond ash & 3% alccofine for BSH compaction, showing that the soil treated With this mixture, base school curriculum for paving can be utilised (during BSH compaction).
