Paper Title:
Research on the Swelling Characteristics of Expansive Soil
  Abstract

Swelling tests of remolded expansive soil with water immersing are carried out by use of the simple consolidometers. The swelling characteristics of the expansive soil under the different initial conditions are studied. The Dose Response model is used to fit the rules of swelling time interval for expansive soil with water immersing. The quantitative relationship among the swelling and initial overburden pressure, initial water content and initial dry density is attained by use of the three dimensional regression analyses. The important index obtained could be provided to the engineering design, construction and stability evaluation of expansive soil slopes.
