SOIL MECHANICS: VOLUME 1: SOIL MECHANICS BASIC PRINCIPLES

MECANICA DE SUELOS: TOMO I: FUNDAMENTO DE LA MECANICA DE SUELOS

DETAILS ARE GIVEN OF THE ORIGIN, FORMATION AND MINERAL CONSTITUENTS OF SOILS, TOGETHER WITH THE THEORETICAL BASIS AND METHODOLOGY OF LABORATORY TESTS FOR STUDYING THE GRAVIMETRY, PARTICLE SIZE DISTRIBUTION, PLASTICITY, CLASSIFICATION AND IDENTIFICATION OF THE SOILS AND THEIR HYDRAULIC PROPERTIES. THE MAIN TOPICS DISCUSSED ARE: ONE-DIMENSIONAL CONSOLIDATION (ATTENTION IS DRAWN TO CASES OF NON-ONE-DIMENSIONAL SEEPAGE AND SECONDARY CONSOLIDATION) AND SHEAR (DIRECT, SIMPLE AND TRIAXIAL COMPRESSION) TESTS. A STUDY IS CONDUCTED OF UNSATURATED SOIL, THE EFFECT OF LEACHING ON THE COMPRESSIBILITY AND STRENGTH OF MARINE CLAY, THE EFFECT OF CATION EXCHANGE AND OF THE EXCHANGE OF CEMENTING AGENTS ON THE COMPRESSIBILITY AND STRENGTH OF CLAYS. COMPACTION, INVESTIGATION AND SAMPLING OF SOILS ARE ALSO CONSIDERED.
