Abstract:

The paper presents the laboratory and field test results carried out on the black cotton soil section of a proposed road between Biu and Maiduguri in north eastern Nigeria. The test results are examined and the inter-relationship between such rapid tests as linear shrinkage, free swell and other long established soil parameters such as Atterberg limits, group index are established for this expansive soil. Equations are given for predicting free swell and linear shrinkage from index properties for this soil. (TRRL)
