Cracking was studied in fifty soils located in two recent alluvial plains and it was related to soil parameters such as clay content, soil moisture content, bulk density and coefficient of linear extensibility (COLE). The total crack area per unit soil surface, the crack width and crack depth were measured by tracing them on transparent sheets. The rate of crack development was also studied in a...
