A STUDY OF CORRELATION BETWEEN SWELLING PRESSURE AND PHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF SOME SOILS

For safe and economic design of structures to be constructed in expansive soils study of swelling properties is an important prerequisite. The volume change in swelling soils are the cause of many problems in structures that come into their contact. The laboratory test method for finding swelling pressure of any soil is time consuming and expensive. The laboratory test for the determination of consistency limits and differential free swell are relatively easy and consume less time. In this study, swelling pressure of some soils collected from different
