THE EFFECT OF ANISOTROPY ON SWELLING OF A COMPACTED CLAY

THE EFFECT OF ANISOTROPY ON THE SWELLING OF A COMPACTED CLAY WAS STUDIED USING THE SWELLING PRESSURE RING, THUS PERMITTING MEASUREMENT OF BOTH VERTICAL AND LATERAL SWELLING PRESSURES. THE EFFECT OF PLATELET ORIENTATION ON BOTH LATERAL AND VERTICAL SWELLING WAS DETERMINED. THE P.V.C. METER WAS ALSO USED IN THE STUDY. THE ENGINEERING ASPECTS OF THE PROBLEMS INVOLVED IN THE EFFECT OF ANISOTROPY ON SWELLING ARE DISCUSSED. /A/RRL/
