Expansive soils create challenges in civil engineering projects due to their tendency to significant volume changes with variation in moisture content. In this study, an experimental study was carried out to evaluate the influences of rock powder on the geotechnical properties of expansive soil. This paper presents the results of some index and engineering properties of expansive soil mixed ...

Abstrac, Volume change resulting from moisture variations in expansive soil subgrades is estimated to cause damage to,streets and highways in excess of $1.1 bil- lion annually in the United States. Expansive soils are so areally extensive within parts of the United States that alteration of the highway routes to avoid the material is virtually ...

friendly soil stabilizer, which can enhance the strength and stiffness of problematic expansive soils to moderate levels. The LISS also inhibits the swell potential of expansive soils and slightly reduces the plasticity index and linear shrinkage ratio. The reductions in swell potentials were associated with an increase in strength and

A. Expansive Soil Expansive soil is one of major soil deposits of India. Expansive soil exhibit high rate of swelling and shrinkage when exposed to changes in moisture content and hence have been found to be most troublesome from engineering consideration. The cracks in expansive soils are usually more than 50mm wide and several millimeters deep.
