Montmorillonitic soils pose problems in the field as they are capable of exhibiting appreciable swelling when come in contact with water. In this context, prediction of amount of swell of such field soils gains importance. There are many approaches documented in the geotechnical engineering literature to predict the ultimate swell values. In the present work, a method of predicting the ultimate swell of the soils namely �observational procedure� based on the procedure proposed by Asaoka for the analysis of consolidation data is developed and proposed. It is shown through exhaustive experimental data that the proposed method predicts the ultimate swell of soils quite satisfactorily. © 2021, The Author(s), under exclusive licence to Springer Nature Switzerland AG part of Springer Nature.
