As a special unsaturated geological soil with multicranny and remarkable expand-shrink property, expansive soils is widely distributed in the world (Shi et al), so many geotechnical /_Spectroscopy_to_characterize_expansive_soils. Title: Spectroscopy as a tool for studying swelling soils: Published in: Expansive soils: recent advances in characterization and treatment. (Proceedings and monographs in engineering, water and earth sciences), - ::publications/ca. Imaging Spectroscopy (IS) is a promising tool for studying soil properties in large spatial domains. Going from point to image spectrometry is not only a journey from micro to macro scales, but also a long stage where problems such as dealing with data having a low signal-to-noise level, contamination of the atmosphere, large data sets, the BRDF effect and more are often :// Using Imaging Spectroscopy to study soil properties Besides a brief discussion on the advantages and disadvantages of IS for studying soils, the following cases are comprehensively discussed

  The Encyclopedia of Soils in the Environment is a comprehensive and integrated consideration of a topic of vital importance to human societies in the past, present, and future. This important work encompasses the present knowledge of the world's variegated soils, their origins, properties, classification, and roles in the ://   Since soils are a mixture of different size particles, soil’s are classified using the so-called soil textural triangle. SSCFall Chapter 1, Page - 4 Vibrational spectroscopy techniques provide a powerful approach to the study of environmental materials and processes. These multifunctional analytical tools can be used to probe molecular vibrations of solid, liquid, and gaseous samples for characterizing materials, elucidating reaction mechanisms, and examining kinetic :// Photoacoustic spectroscopy (PAS, also called optoacoustic spectroscopy) although over years old, has experienced renewed interest with the detection of trace levels of atmospheric pollutants. More recently PAS of condensed systems has resulted from a better understanding of

  Expansive soils have low Bearing Capacity, high Swelling and Shrinkage characteristics and high water susceptibility. Presence of Montimorillonite mineral is responsible for this behaviour of expansive soils. Structural cracks, premature failure of the   The book also presents the concepts of yield and failure in soils, yield criteria, and failure theories. It also focuses on granular and cohesive soil strength, including friction properties, the intrinsic friction angle, the volumetric strain, and pore-water :// Expansive Soils provides the reader with easy and specific access to problems associated with expansive soils, characterisitics and treatment, and evaluation and remediation. Set up with contributions from worlwide expert, this main reference guide is intended for engineers, researchers and senior students working on soil improvement and The first section (5 papers) is devoted to the identification and classification of expansive soils and is followed by sections 2, 3 and 4 (at total of 13 papers) concerning volume change characteristics as well as classical and advanced techniques for swelling potential assessments and ://?
