The history of the problem of cracking of buildings on heaving soils is briefly descriptionbed with reference to observations made on buildings, methods used to prevent or minimize damage, identification of soils which are dangerous and prediction of the amount of movement that can be expected to take place. The possible effect of climate on soil behaviour is considered and the direction in which future research will probably take place is indicated.
