Particle–particle interactions in natural clays can be evaluated by their rheological behavior, but the results are often affected by the physicochemical properties of the clays. The behaviors of two fundamentally different types of clays (low-activity and high-activity) differ with respect to salinity and a time factor (duration of shearing at a given shear rate): illite-rich Jonquiere clay (low-activity clay, Canada) and montmorillonite-rich Wyoming bentonite (high-activity clay, USA). The… Expand
Rheological properties of clayey soils originating from flow-like landslides

Thixotropy of soft clay: A review
Abstract Thixotropy of soil is, after softening by remolding, a process of time-dependent return to a harder state under constant water content and constant volume conditions. This paper presents aExpand
Textural features of saline-sodic soils affected by Urmia Lake in the Northwest of Iran
Abstract The increasing regression of Urmia Lake in the last 30 years has brought about the salinization and sodification of arid soils from the shoreline, which has aggravated land degradation inExpand
Clay in situ resource utilization with Mars global simulant slurries for additive manufacturing and traditional shaping of unfired green bodies

Comparative Analysis of the Spectral Response to Soil Salinity of Saline-Sodic Soils under Different Surface Conditions
The results indicate that soil salinity dominated cracking propagation with a positive correlation, and a greater spectral response to soil properties was found for cracked soil samples relative to the comparative soil samples in the near-infrared and shortwave-inf infrared regions. Expand
