Effect of different types of wetting fluids on the behaviour of expansive soil during wetting and drying
Soil and foundation
This paper presents the results of an experimental investigation into the mechanical behaviour of an expansive soil during wetting and drying cycles. The experimental tests were conducted in a modified oedometer under two different surcharge pressures (10 and 20 kPa). During the tests, the samples were inundated with different types of wetting fluids (distilled water, saline water and acidic water). The volumetric deformation, void ratio and water content of the samples were determined duringdoi:10.1016/j.sandf.2013.08.001 fatcat:moehnlf3zbaz5orln5ss46wqy4
