The compressibilities of various dry clays (halloysite, dickite, illite, kaolinite, hectorite, montmorillonite, attapulgite. and soil samples) have been determined experimentally in the laboratory by the writers and compared with those saturated with either fresh water or sea water. Compressibility (cp) ranges from 8.67 x psi-’ at 1000 psi and from 1.62 X Extensive compaction experiments conducted by the writers indicate that salinity of the squeezed-out solutions changes with pressure and that… CONTINUE READING
