Abstract:

THIS STUDY EVALUATES PROCEDURES FOR PREDICTING ONE-DIMENSIONAL POTENTIAL HEAVE OF FOUNDATION SOILS AND THE RATE AT WHICH HEAVE MAY OCCUR. A computer program ULTRAT Ultimate and rate of heave was developed for predictions of potential heave and heave with time based on two models for characterization of swell behavior the soil suction and mechanical swell models. The soil suction model relates volume change with change in matrix soil suction and water content.
