Clay can be found in many parts of Malaysia. It is very susceptible to settlement due to its low shear strength. Therefore, stabilization is needed especially for a wide construction area. Nowadays, the use of waste materials as construction material is crucial because this practise will help to protect the environment. One of the waste material that has low economical value and less explored by researches is bottom ash (BA). This material is produced from the electric power plant. This… Expand
