Abstract: Industrial wastes have been gaining importance as a geotechnical material in the present days. Due to specific advantages, materials like flyash, pond ash have been considered as a replacement to natural soils. In this an attempt is made to study pond ash as a geotechnical material. To study pond ash as a geotechnical material for sub-grade and fill material, tests like gradation, compaction, CBR, strength and seepage parameters etc., have been conducted on the sample and compared with sand particles. From the test results it is identified that pond ash can withstand high strength by varying moisture contents, good drainage characteristics and incompressible nature like sand particles.
