Title: The Shrinkage Properteis of Clay Soils from Sudan
Author: Elsharief, Ahmed M.; Rahmatalla, Husham H.
Abstract: This paper presents the results of linear, volumetric and COLE shrinkage tests carried out on 18 clayey soil samples obtained from different locations in Sudan. Physiochemical soil properties such as free swell and cation exchange capacity were measured for all samples. Parameters were developed from the volumetric shrinkage curve and were correlated with the physiochemical properties and with the developed parameters from the volumetric shrinkage curve. The shrinkage parameters such as shrinkage ratio, volume of solid , volumetric shrinkage and percent of volume at the plastic limit are good parameters for estimation of the shrinkage potential.
