Could someone help me in understanding the term "Select Fill" materials. I understand these fills are not expansive and can substitute the expansive soils in order to decrease the potential vertical rise of the sub-grade soil due to moisture variations. What are the typical ingredients of select fill materials. I presume they are sand and clay. How many percent clay do they have? Thank you.
