WHEN THESE ROCKS CONTRACTED AIR, THEY WERE WEATHERED AND THE EXCAVATED SURFACES WERE BROKEN DOWN LIKE SCALE FRACTIONS. THIS REPORT EXPLAINS THE WORKING PROCEDURES AGAINST THE SWELLING ROCKS THAT WERE ENCOUNTERED DURING THE WORK. VARIOUS MEASUREMENTS WERE CARRIED OUT IN ORDER TO CONSIDER THE COUNTER-MEASURES. /AUTHOR/
