Influence of moisture on soil swelling
- 50 Downloads
The dependence of the relative swelling of soils on their initial moisture content and yield point is examined. Physical characteristics of six types of swelling soils are determined, and results of their testing in compression devices are also described. The swelling pattern of soils with different initial moisture contents and the relation to liquid limit are demonstrated; this makes it possible to predict the uplift of the surface of a bed.
