Abstract: 

Expansive behavior is usually observed in soils, which contain fractions of clay minerals in their composition. Water absorption of clay particles and change of natural water content of soil up to plastic limit and down to shrinkage limit will cause significant volume change in expansive soil and will result in severe damages to the structures, buildings and foundations. Swelling potential is directly related to clay minerals activity and soil plasticity. Besides all the parameters expressing composition of soil, environmental conditions provide conditions to release the swelling potential.
In the present study, in order to observe effects of soil mineralogy, plasticity, and compaction indices such as water content and dry unit weight, swelling behavior of five clay soils has been investigated.
Results of experiments indicate that parameters like clay minerals, absorbed cations to clay sheets, plasticity index, clay size fraction, initial water content and dry density have significant influence on the swelling behavior of compacted clays.
