CONSTRUCTION ON EXPANSIVE SOILS: CASE OF ROAD SECTION SÉHOUÈ-MASSI

Cover Page

Abstract


The expansive soils are some soils able to move after loading or water movement; thus, precocious degradations are observed on the structures that are built on them. The present study based on the Sèhouè-Massi section of the Akassato-Bohicon road that is a part of the RNIE N°2 in Benin. The previous work done on the soil of this road section showed that it is on aexpansive clay formation. After had analyzed the auscultation and the geotechnical study results, a road inverse structure appropriate to the traffic was proposed
