CLAY TECHNOLOGY AND ITS APPLICATION TO SOIL STABILIZATION

A BRIEF SURVEY OF MODERN TRENDS IN COLLOID REASONING AND ITS RELATIONSHIP TO CLAY TECHNOLOGY IS PRESENTED. THE APPLICATION OF THESE TEACHINGS TO THE USE OF SOILS WITHIN MODERN CONSTRUCTION IS BROUGHT OUT. SUCH FACTORS AS MINERALOGICAL COMPOSITION AND PARTICLE DISTRIBUTION AFFECT RESULTS TO AN EXTENT WHERE THESE VARIABLES NO LONGER CAN BE IGNORED. RESULTS INDICATE THAT A RANGE OF PROPERTIES IS POSSIBLE IN SYNTHETIC GRADED SOIL MIXTURE WHEN ANY OF THE FOLLOWING FACTORS IS VARIED: (1) CLAY MINERAL; (2) PARTICLE SIZE OF THE CLAY MINERAL; OR (3) COUNTER-ION ASSOCIATED WITH COLLOIDAL PORTION OF CLAY MINERAL. THE THERMAL METHOD OF IDENTIFICATION OF THE CLAY MINERALS AFFORDS AN EASY AND RAPID TEST. /AUTHOR/
