Paper Title:
Swell-Shrinkage Behavior of Remolded Expansive Soils
  Abstract

The swelling behaviour of compacted expansive soils have been studied with variation in initial state. For comparison, a series of swell and shrinkage capacity laboratory tests with different initial dry densities,moisture contents and pressures have also been made with three different consistency state. Both percent swell and shrinkage are significantly influenced by the consistency state index. There is an unique relationship between percent swell and consistency state index of the soil. The percent swell-load relationship could be identified as a logarithmic relationship facilitating the prediction of ultimate percent swell under different load with a few initial results.
