REMEDIAL TREATMENT OF SOIL MATERIALS FOR EARTH STRUCTURES AND FOUNDATIONS VOLUME STABILITY OF EXPANSIVE-SOIL FOUNDATIONS

ENGINEERING PROCEDURES TO MAINTAIN VOLUMETRIC STABILITY OF EXPANSIVE CLAYS AND FROST SUSCEPTIBLE SOILS ARE TO BE DEVELOPED. RESEARCH ON EXPANSIVE CLAYS WILL INCLUDE DEFINITION OF THE PROBLEM, DEVELOPMENT AND APPLICATION OF REMEDIAL TECHNIQUES, AND FIELD VERIFICATION OF THE SOLUTIONS. RESEARCH ON FROST SUSCEPTIBLE SOILS WILL BE BASED ON LABORATORY MEASURES CAPABLE OF QUANTITATIVELY PREDICTING SWELLING.
