The expansive clay soils are spread in a large area all over the world. They are one of the predominated problematic soils which can change their volume and loss their shear strength when they exposed to water. Several methods have been used to mitigate the negative effects of expansive soil on civil engineering structures and constructions. Different materials have been applied in these stabilization methods (physical or chemical stabilization). Wastes from construction and demolition of the

This paper presents a critical review on one of construction and demolition wastes materials, i.e. brick waste, which is found in large quantiles. The characterization and utilization of brick waste in stabilization of expansive soil and other civil engineering applications was discussed and presented in this paper.
