MICACEOUS SOILS' METHODS OF DETERMINING MICA CONTENT AND THE USE OF ROUTINE TESTS IN THE EVALUATION OF SUCH SOILS

SEVERAL POSSIBLE METHODS OF DETERMINING THE MICA CONTENT OF A SOIL ARE REVIEWED AND THE DEVELOPMENT AND SUCCESSFUL OPERATION OF TWO METHODS, A VIBRATORY METHOD AND A DIELECTRIC ONE ARE DESCRIBED. THE RESULTS OF STANDARD LABORATORY TESTS ON THREE SOILS WITH A HIGH MICA CONTENT ARE CONDUCTED AND THE VALUE AND LIMITATIONS OF SUCH TESTS IN ASSESSING THE FIELD PERFORMANCE OF MICACEOUS SOILS ARE DISCUSSED.
