Abstract
Parameters such as soil fabric, mineral composition, plasticity and grain size distribution together with soil-volume behavior are essential for the evaluation of shrinkage and cracking processes in soils. This paper presents the results of a laboratory testing program conducted on surface Bogota´ clay to evaluate basic geotechnical properties and compressibility soil parameters due to suction changes. Water retention curves and suction controlled oedometer tests, were used to evaluate the effe...
