The problem of heaving soils appears to have much in common with that of shrinking aggregates ; in both cases the materials contain small particles and exhibit considerable dimensional change with change in moisture content. The writer suggests that the two problems may be different manifestations of the same basic phenomenon and would ask the Author if any research work has been conducted in an attempt to correlate the two problems.
