A series of experimental programs was undertaken to investigate mechanical behaviour of bagasse ash stabilized organic soil. Preliminary experiment was done to verify the chemical and physical characteristics of bagasse ash and organic soil. The following experiment was then performed to study the improvement of unconfined compression strength of bagasse ash stabilized organic soil. In this research, three different organic soils and four different bagasse ashes were used. The soil was mixed with 10, 20 and 30% bagasse ash, then a set of unconfined compression tests were performed. In general, the results indicate that the unconfined compression strength of stabilized soil improve proportional to the percentage of bagasse ash. And, the quick lime content (CaO), ratio between quick lime and silica (CaO/SiO2), and ratio between quick lime and the sum of silica and alumina {CaO/(SiO2+Al2O3)} were the fundamental factors affecting the improvement of bagasse ash stabilized soil unconfined compression strength. The significant improvement occurs on 0.25 < (CaO/SiO2) < 1.00, and 0.20< (CaO/(SiO2+Al3O3) < 0.67. In contrast, organic content decreased unconfined compression, and maximum dry density (MDD) of stabilized soil. The addition of bagasse to the organic soil, however, does not significantly improve the unconfined compression strength, then addition of 6, 8, and 10% calcium carbide residue (CCR) was performed to the bagasse ash stbilized organic soil to get better engineering performance of stabilized soil. For 9% CCR, qu improve from 93 to 208 kPa
