PHYSICAL AND MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF FINE COMPACTED SOILS /IN FRENCH, SPANISH/

THE COLLOIDAL ACTIVITY OF CLAY AND ITS APPLICATION TO FINE COMPACTED SOIL ARE DISCUSSED. COHESION, SWELLING, AND COMPRESSIBILITY PHENOMENA CAN BE EXPLAINED BY THE ACTION OF COLLOIDAL FORCES. THE DIRECTION OF THE MICROSCOPIC PARTICLES IN THE SOIL IS A FUNCTION OF THE MOISTURE CONTENT AND COMPACTION METHODS. THE SHEARING STRENGTH OF THE SOIL UNDER COMPACTION IS ALSO STUDIED; IT IS CONDITIONED BY THE SOIL MICROSCOPIC STRUCTURE, AND THE EFFECTS OF VARIOUS COMPACTION METHODS CAN BE DEFINED BY STUDYING THE EVOLUTION OF THE STRUCTURE UNDER SHEARING STRESSES. THE INFLUENCE OF STRUCTURE, NEGLIGIBLE WITH A LOW WATER CONTENT DURING COMPACTION,CAN BECOME VERY IMPORTANT WITH A HIGH WATER CONTENT. THE EFFECT OF IMMERSION AND SWELLING, CAUSED BY IMMERSION, ON SHEARING STRENGTH ARE EXAMINED. /LCPC/A/RRL/
