    Soils and Foundations Chapter 3 Bangladesh National Building Code 6‐ ALLOWABLE BEARING CAPACITY: The maximum net average pressure of loading that the soil will safely carry with a factor of safety considering risk of shear failure and the settlement of foundation. Expansive soils are a worldwide problem, causing extensive damage to civil engineering structures. Jones and Holtz estimated in that the annual cost of damage in the United States due to expansive soil movement was $ billion (Jones and Holtz, ). A more up-to-date figure is about $9.

Soils and Foundations for Architects and Engineers, Second Edition is a practical guide to the technology of soil mechanics and foundations, and the application of that technology to the design and construction process. This text provides an up-to-date overview of the classification of soils, the design of foundations, and the behavior of soils under load.

      Since , his principal areas of activity have been in the study of lightly loaded foundations constructed on expansive soils, their behavior, and repair. As a forensic consultant, he has lectured nationally and internationally and is widely published in technical : Robert Wade Brown. behavior of expansive soils is fly ash. The efficacy of fly ash as an additive to expansive soils in ameliorating their properties was reported. Special Foundation Techniques The problem of heave or uplift of foundations caused by expansive soils is one of tension developed in the soil due to Size: KB.

Expansive Soils Create Foundation Damage. Expansive soils, clay soil, shrink-swell, and heavable soil. These are all different names for the same thing: expansive soil.

Expansive soils are responsible for more damage to buildings than any other natural hazard. This type of soil contains minerals like smectite clays, which absorb a lot of moisture. Expansive soils cause major damage to light foundations and associated structures.

However, engineers have the ability to recognize swelling clay soils and to design structures that can withstand the effects.
