Abstract: Regression models by genetic programming are useful in establishing relationships among various parameters using Darwin’s theory of evolution. Geotechnical parameters have been used in this model for the dataset obtained from literature. Genetic Programming is the automatic creation of computer programs to perform a selected task using Darwinian natural selection. The datasets for the expansive soil contain all the 3 expansive clay minerals – montmorillonite, illite and kaolinite. The origin for this problematic soil in Tabuk region, Saudi Arabia is due to the presence of Hanadir shale. Consolidometer was used in determining free swell for the undisturbed soil.
