In this study, the swelling pressure of unsaturated, compacted bentonite-sand mixture was measured, which the all samples had experiment in dying-wetting history in suction changing. This test program used Kunigel V1 as sodium type. Constant volume swelling test was conducted out that swelling pressure was measured using a developed apparatus. A pressure sensor was mounted in the swelling test apparatus. Previously, the all samples deformed due to suction change (i.e. drying-wetting process in suction). Two types were prepared before applying suction that were initial unsaturated condition and saturated condition on same initial dry density. Swelling pressure and adsorbed water amount was monitored in the test, which lasted for one month.
