Title

Relevance of membrane properties of clay-rich geologic materials to water-related engineering issues

Abstract

"A number of laboratory studies have shown that clays exhibit membrane properties. However, the vast majority of these studies have been done using high compaction pressures, high hydraulic heads, and pure clays. Such high compaction pressures and high heads are not representative of shallow subsurface conditions encountered in engineering applications. Therefore, the goal of this research was to obtain experimental data more representative of situations encountered in the shallow subsurface"--Abstract, leaf iv.
