Abstract: This research is a main attempt to investigate the compressive strength using marble sludge powder (MSP) as an additive. Soil stabilization is defined as the alteration in properties of the soil samples. The main aim of this project is to identify the compressive strength details by adding various proportions of MSP with cement concrete. Data were collected from failure spot near embankment in Vembakottai dam located in Virudunagar District, Tamilnadu. Samples can be taken from different places at particular timings. Marble sludge material is a waste material which is generated from Marble processing industries. The compressive strength was revealed by Unconfined compressive machine.
