Results of observations on the heaving of thirty-seven houses founded on expansive soils are presented. The types of construction used include one house of orthodox construction on normal strip footings, twenty-four houses on under-reamed pile foundations with different depths of founding, and twelve houses constructed of reinforced brick-work. The maximum, average and differential movements of the houses and some data on the swelling of the soil at various depths are given.
