Abstract in different language: Low-strength substrates and anthropogenic soils are always an issue in civil engineering. Based on the soil layer types, several methods could be used to improve the basic/foundation layer however it would be difficult to make sure if the specified requirements are achieved. Nowadays, Expandable Polystyrene (EPS) as a lightweight material found as a substitution for traditional methods like soil replacement, soil mixing, using piles driving and other treatment techniques. This paper will demonstrate the static properties of EPS foams in a view point of construction material which will be a key for the future study of these materials. A series of compression tests were carried out on different types of EPS foam to study the effect of EPS geofoam density on the mechanical behaviour of these materials
