Abstract

The purpose of the present study was to highlight the different types of soils that could exhibit collapsing and to proposed an approach for more accurate and comprehensive evaluation of this phenomenon. The research showed that conventional oedometer test could underestimate the soil collapse potential. Underestimation of the severity of this problem could cause serious damages to the engineering structures.
