PLASTICITY OF CLAY MINERALS

A SIMPLE TEST METHOD HAS BEEN DEVISED TO EXPRESS NUMERICALLY THE RELATIVE PLASTICITY OF RAW CLAYS. THIS REPORT INCLUDES A TEST PROCEDURE WITH SUPPORTING PHYSICAL DATA ON A VARIETY OF CLAYS. DENOTED AS THE COEFFICIENT OF PLASTICITY, APPLICATION OF THIS TECHNIQUE IS DEMONSTRATED. THIS METHOD IS USEFUL IN THE QUALITATIVE IDENTIFICATION OF RAW CLAYS AND FOR NOTING CHANGES IN PLASTICITY AS AFFECTED BY VARIABLES SUCH AS PLASTICIZERS, VACUUM DE-AIRING, PARTICLE SIZE, AND INERT ADDITIVES. /AUTHOR/
