Title: Evaluation of Residential Area Rehabilitation in Khartoum State
Author: Elarabi, Hussein
Abstract: The aim of this paper is to describe the evaluation method used for qualification of the site under study. The site is located in Abu Sid Block 14 at Khartoum State. In situ and Laboratory testing were carried out to make the data available for the evaluation. Based on geotechnical investigation, the top clay soil is potentially expansive and problems are expected to occur due to the soil heave associated with increase in its moisture content, if certain measures are not taken during construction stage. Such measures and precautions have to be considered to avoid excessive movements especially under lightly loaded buildings, floors and underground structures. Many recommendations were derived to make optimum use of the site as residential area
