||This paper includes an experimental study of the swelling behavior of a compacted soil. The study is performed using a flexible odometer, wich allows for lateral deformation during soil expansion and the measurement of the lateral swell pressure. The paper is composed of two parts. The first one describes the flexible device used in this study while the second presents experimental results and discusses the influence of the rigidity of the odometer ring on the swelling behavior of a compacted soil.
