THE THEORETICAL WATER DISTRIBUTION AND OPTIMUM MOISTURE CONTENT OF SOILS, STABILIZED SOILS AND CONCRETE /IN GERMAN/

THE AUTHOR DESCRIBES ADMIXTURE OF WATER IN SYNTHETICALLY COMPACTED CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS, THE CALCULATION OF THE SPECIFIC WATER VOLUME AND THE DETERMINATION OF THE VALUE OF THE WATER. THIS IS FOLLOWED BY STATEMENTS ON WATER DISTRIBTUION AND DETERMINATION OF OPTIMUM AMOUNT OF WATER FOR SILTY, SANDY AND GRAVELLY SOILS AND THE GRAPHIC DETERMINATION OF WATER FILM THICKNESS OF SILTY SOILS FOR A PARTICLE SIZE LESS THAN 0.02 MM IN DIAMETER, AND LIKEWISE FOR NON-COHESIVE SOILS. AFTER DEALING WITH THE DETERMINATION OF THE SPECIFIC WATER VOLUME OF NON-COHESIVE SOILS, THE AUTHOR CONSIDERS THE INFLUENCE OF COMPACTION ON THE CALCULATION OF THE OPTIMUM WATER CONTENT FOR SOILS AND THE WATER VOLUME OF COHESIVE AND NON-COHESIVE SOILS. COMPARISONS ARE MADE BETWEEN CALCULATED WATER CONTENTS AND THOSE DETERMINED BY THE SIMPLE PROCTOR METHOD. /FG/RRL/
