Foundations on Expansive Soils provides the practicing engineer with a summary of the state-of-the-art of expansive soils and practical solutions based on the author's experience. The book is organized into two parts. Part I deals with theory and practice, and summarizes some of the theoretical physical properties of expansive soils. It also discusses various techniques employed to found structures on expansive soils such as drilled pier foundation, mat foundation, moisture control, soil replacement, and chemical stabilization. Topics covered include the origin, mineralogical composition, and the basic structure of expansive soils; the migration of water, swelling potential, and swelling pressure; site investigations and laboratory testing; moisture control; and soil stabilization. Part II presents case studies on the following: distress caused by pier uplift; distress caused by the improper design and construction of a drilled pier foundation system; distress caused by heaving of footing pad and floor slab; distress caused by heaving of continuous footings; and distress caused by a rise of ground water.

The purpose of this project is two-fold: (1) to assemble information and data useful during the preliminary design phase of structure built on expansive soil; and (2) to organize and structure the information into a framework (pattern language) to focus the designer's attention on the applicable design information and data at the proper point in the design process. Development of the pattern language for this purpose produced 15 basic relationships (patterns) specifically related to the solution of design problems associated with construction on expansive soils. The basic patterns were organized into a (logic diagram-type) cascade to provide designers with a system which displays the interconnection among the patterns and enables them to preserve a view of the entire design process. For use in the preliminary design of structure on expansive soils, the pattern language design method is very instructive. It can be used to apprise and educate designers about the problems associated with designing buildings in expansive soils areas.
