Tenayan Raya Subdistrict is an area that has a thickness of soft clay layer. Some cases of building failure were cracks and tilts due to high shrinkage of soil. Nearby is also a brick home industry center, where ashes are produced from bricks burning. Soil Improvement of Tenayan-Raya's Clay and utilization of brick ash will be carried out in this research. This study aims to stabilize the soil with lime and utilize the brick ash to improve shear strength and bearing capacity of the soil. The study was conducted in the laboratory by making several combinations of content clay, lime, and Brick Ash (BA), for the soil mixture which will be added with 10% ash brick. The effect of curing and soaked will also be seen for its rising on soil properties of Unconfined Compression Strength, and CBR laboratories. The influence of water will also be reviewed on the dry side, optimal moisture content, and wet side. The test results show that the Soil has Low Plasticity soil type category CL-ML symbols, according to the Unified classification. Increasing of strength due to stabilization with lime is obtained in conditions of water in optimal moisture content, where the addition of lime is 10% and 10% brick ash, was produced to increase the maximum value of Unconfined Compression Strength and CBR laboratory value. Curing setup time and saturation (soaked) also had affect the value of Unconfined Compressive Strength and CBR laboratory test. At longer time for curing, shear strength will rise proved by the value of UCS Test andbearing capacity value also increase that can be seen of the laboratory CBR test. Curing will make the shrinkage of clay reduced, this can be proven from differences value of Unconfined Compressive strength test between samples with and without soaked, are relatively small.
