Abstract. The article discusses about the feasibility of using clay from the Roshtkala deposit in Tajikistan as a construction material used in the constructions of affordable housing. It has been determined that the materials using the clay under study have sufficient strength and acceptable quality. They can be used separately, as well as in combination with cement binder for the production of soilconcrete materials.
Key words: soil, clay, soilcement mixture, soil concrete, strength, expediency.
