Shrinking and swelling behaviour of expansive clays in response to water content change is a worldwide problem. It is one of the most usually geotechnical behaviour that causes a lot of damages to buildings. Expansive soils have the property to modify their volume when moisture changes in relation with temperature, precipitation and vegetation. The paper aimed to determine the shrink-swell behaviour of three different types of expansive clays from Australia, UK and Romania related to the vertical ground movement.
