Swelling Behavior of Compacted Expansive Soils

In this paper, swell pressures of the compacted expansive soil of Guangxi Province are investigated by a series of swelling laboratory tests with different initial moisture contents and dry density. The relationships of swell pressure with initial moisture content and dry density are established. The method to calculate the expansive characteristics is obtained when the water contents and total stress levels are changed. These relationships can be used in practical expansive soils engineering.
