Abstract

Problems of clayey mass stability are mainly due to swelling behavior and strength reduction of clayey soils and rocks. Laboratory measurements were carried out on various clayey materials to obtain their engineering properties related with the performance of clays in nature. The author demonstrated statistical relationships among material index and material properties. Review of geotechnical mechanisms concerning moisture and mineralogy effects was also given.

Moisture and Mineralogy Aspect of Clayey Materials

St. Louis, Missouri

Problems of clayey mass stability are mainly due to swelling behavior and strength reduction of clayey soils and rocks. Laboratory measurements were carried out on various clayey materials to obtain their engineering properties related with the performance of clays in nature. The author demonstrated statistical relationships among material index and material properties. Review of geotechnical mechanisms concerning moisture and mineralogy effects was also given.
