Examines the possible magnitude of suction in compacted states of clayey soils. From the test results, it is concluded that suction is zero in monotonically loaded unsaturated states. This implies that suction in compacted states should be equal to the compaction stress itself. However, as data previously reported in literature have often shown - suction is strongly related to the water content and not much affected by the compaction stress.
