ABSTRACT Petrologic and geochemical factors strongly influence the compaction of clays and sands under pressures between 0 and 100 kg per cm2. Particle size is the most pervasive of these, both in its consistently inverse relation to porosity and in its control of the influence exerted by the other factors. The water content of saturated clays is a complex function of the physico-chemical influences on the sorption of water on clay-mineral surfaces. Water content and specific surface increase… CONTINUE READING
