Abstract
Cracking in desiccating soils is an important topic in soil compacted works. This paper presents an experimental study on the effect of compaction on the cracking of a silty clay soil, which was subjected to drying conditions. The specimens were compacted at different initial moisture contents with the purpose of studying the effect that the amount of water has in the crack formation and propagation. As initial condition, different points were considered from the Standard Proctor curve. Three sp...
