TECHNIQUE FOR STUDY OF GRANULAR MATERIALS

A TECHNIQUE IS PROPOSED FOR MEASURING CHARACTERISTICS RELATED TO THE GRAIN-PORE DISTRIBUTION OF GRANULAR DEPOSITS WITHOUT DISTURBING THE ORIGINAL GRANULAR STRUCTURE. THE TECHNIQUE CONSISTS OF SUCCESSIVE PHASES OF IMPREGNATION WITH TWO DIFFERENT TYPES OF GROUT, RESULTING IN FIXING THE ORIGINAL GRAIN CONFIGURATION IN A HARD EPOXY MATRIX. THIN SECTIONS ARE THEN READILY OBTAINED AND ALLOW DETERMINATION OF THE REQUIRED CHARACTERISTICS ALONG ANY GIVEN LINE OR PLANE WITHIN THE POROUS DEPOSIT. THE SUCCESSIVE STEPS OF THE EXPERIMENTAL TECHNIQUE ARE DESCRIBED IN DETAIL AND ARE ACCOMPANIED BY ILLUSTRATIONS AND SAMPLE CALCULATIONS. THE TECHNIQUE IS EXPECTED TO HAVE A WIDE RANGE OF APPLICATIONS IN RESEARCH RELATED TO THE STUDY OF GRANULAR MATERIALS. /ASCE/
