Description

Essential technical information for building on expansive soils--complete with practical, proven design methods.

Expansive Soils examines factors that influence the design offoundations and pavements built on expansive soils, and exploreskey design procedures and remedial measures that address thesefactors effectively. Backed by the authors' extensive research andexperience --including interviews with practicing engineers workingwith expansive soils --this authoritative volume is an importantreference text for geotechnical and foundation engineers,geologists, construction professionals, and students.

Easy to understand and apply, Expansive Soils contains:
* Site investigation techniques for identification andclassification of expansive soils
* Heave prediction methods using different types of data --withrigorous treatment of soil suction theory and measurement,oedometer tests, and more
* Alternative design procedures for drilled pier and slab-on-gradefoundations, highway and airfield pavements
* Treatment and chemical stabilization techniques --including salttreatment; moisture barriers; lime and cement stabilization; andother procedures
* Remedial measures such as drainage control, and removal withreplacement and compaction control
* Sample problems illustrating practical applications.
