Abstract: This paper discusses the Ultimate Bearing Capacity of a stabilized soil by using the fly ash, stone dust and rubber powder for design of a pavement. This paper will help in utilization of locally available waste materials to reuse in the subbase and subgrade layers of pavement. Rubber powder is a waste byproduct generated from the recycling of tires, and is not so easy for degradable, and hence leads to release of harmful gases when it tends to burn. Stone dust is a locally available waste generated product from quarries. The generation of stone dust is increasing day to day in large quantity. The huge quantity of stone dust storage amount will affect the quality of soil. Fly ash is waste combusted coal ash powder generated from the steamers of coal boilers with the burning of fuel gases together. In the sub grade layer the soil is mixed in different proportions with stone dust for hard foundation. In the sub base layer the soil is stabilized with the combination of rubber powder and fly ash. When the rubber powder and fly ash, mixed with water for compaction generates a bond between the soil particles to settle the air fields. In this paper various percentages of rubber powder, stone dust and fly ash with different samples for pavement is layered, and after that plate load test is conducted upon it.
