Summary:
Expansive soils are a worldwide problem. The estimated damage to buildings, roads and other structures built on expansive soils exceeds fifteen billion US dollars annually. With their ability to swell and shrink in relation to the environment's water content, expansive soils are considered as geonatural hazards and form a challenge to geotechnical and construction engineers. To address the problems associated with  Read more...

To address the problems associated with these soils, this edited book provides expert contributions on the recent advances in the characteristics and treatment of expansive soils as well as an evaluation of and remedial measures suggested for structures built on expansive soils. Expansive Soils: Recent Advances in Characterization and Treatment provides the reader with easy and specific access to the information needed. Containing contributions by 52 experts from 22 countries, it gives a truly worldwide perspective of the problems and solutions associated with expansive soils. A valuable reference for engineers, researchers and (graduate) students working on expansive soils, soil improvement and foundation engineering."@en ;
