1 Laboratory tests were conducted to investigate the effect of wetting-drying (W-D) 2 cycles on the initiation and evolution of cracks in clay layer. Four identical slurry 3 specimens were prepared and subjected to five subsequent W-D cycles. The water 4 evaporation, surface cracks evolution and structure evolution during the W-D cycles 5 were monitored. The effect of W-D cycles on the geometric characteristics of crack 6 patterns was analyzed by image processing. The results show that the… CONTINUE READING
