Although fly ash has possesses viable engineering properties, an overwhelming majority of fly ash from coal combustion is still placed in storage or disposal sites. This study was undertaken to investigate the physical and mechanical properties of clay-fly ash mixture and to furnish engineering data when fly ash utilized as engineering materials. This paper includes geotechnical properties of fly ash, clay-fly ash mixtures and results of compaction test, unconfined strength test, direct shear test, leaching test and stability analysis of clay-fly ash bank slope. If proper amount of fly ash was put in clay, the clay-fly ash mixture has an increase of unconfined strength and stability of bank slope.
