Marine clay is formed by the sedimentation of clayey soils in marine environments. They exhibit unusual physical properties like high liquid limit, low bearing capacity, higher settlement, high seepage loss but being predominantly distributed all over the world, it is a necessary factor to improve its characteristics and make it suitable for construction. The main objective of this study is to investigate the use of waste material such as banana fiber in geotechnical applications. Various tests such as Unconfined compression (UCC), California Bearing Ratio (CBR), Atterberg limits, Compaction were carried out and the results are analysed.
