Abstract

Expansive or swelling soils exist in many parts of the world. Such common soils in Australia, India and South Africa Show excessive volume changes with increase in water content. Results of this volume increase expansive soil apply pressure to the structures located or buried in these regions. In this paper comparison of swelling behaviour of expansive clay is investigate using Constant Volume and Consolidometer method. The tests will be carried out on a number of samples obtained from different part of Saurashtra region Rajkot, Bhavnagar, Jamnagar, Amreli. The remoulded samples are prepared having different initial dry densities with different initial water contents used to study the effect of these variable parameters on the swelling pressure. It is observed that swell pressures increase with increasing initial dry density and they decrease with increasing initial water content.
