    Abstract

    A soil expansivity classification is proposed based on the sediment volume ratio defined as the ratio of the sediment volume in 0.025% sodium chloride solution to that in kerosene. The results of the proposed classification agree well with one based on the oedometer test results of compacted soil specimens.
