Nature and properties of expansive soils in Nigeria



Nature and properties of expansive soils in Nigeria



Proceedings 6th International Conference on Expansive Soils, New Delhi, 1-4 December 1987 Volume 1: 11-16



The nature and properties of four expansive soils throughout the geologically and geographically most extreme areas of Nigeria are summarized. The expansive soils have been selected to reflect different mineralogical components.
