Expansive soils, which shrink or swell under changing moisture conditions, cause more damage to structures, particularly light buildings and pavements, than any other natural hazard, including earthquakes and floods. This book describes the engineering problems of foundations built on expansive soils. It presents techniques for dealing with the problems of construction and design and provides reliable, proven methods for building on expansive soils.
