DAMAGE TO FOUNDATIONS FROM EXPANSIVE SOILS

Concrete drainage devices can be adversely affected by expansive soils (see Fig. 5). Swelling clays can lift and crack concrete ditches, seriously impairing their ability to convey runoff. Subsequent contraction may leave a void under the concrete, leading to piping and erosion as runoff flows under the ditch.

flooring - How is expansion and contraction affected when ...

May 28, 2020  Northern Germany is pretty wet, and I'm worried about the natural expansion and contraction of the wood over the seasons. I did a floating solid oak floor over concrete some years back in a nearby home, also second floor. Glued the tongues and floated on underlayment. Despite the small rooms, I'm not too happy with the seasonal gaps.

TECHNICAL NOTE #20

Because concrete is more porous, concrete bricks exhibit reversible expansion and contraction in the range of 3-6mm per 10m of walling. Clay bricks have a once off, permanent expansion after manufacture due to the firing process that extracts all moisture from the brick. This expansion is between 0 and 0.2%.
