Abstract: Yazoo clay is infamous as a problematic high-volume-change (expansive) soil prevalent in the Jackson, MS, metropolitan region. The Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDoT) requested the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) to analyze data, perform lab testing, and provide geotechnical engineering guidance related to Yazoo clay identification and behavior characterization. This report documents the efforts of that study including insitu sampling, unique lab tests, data analyses, and conclusions.
