CAPILLARY PENETRATION FOUNDATION SOILS AND CARRIAGEWAY. COHESION AND STABILITY OF SOILS /IN FRENCH/

THE APPLICATION OF THE POISEVILLE, JURIN AND DARCY LAWS TO THE STUDY OF CAPILLARY PENETRATION OF WATER IN FOUNDATION SOILS AND CARRIAGEWAYS IS DISCUSSED. THE IMPORTANCE OF THE DARCY PERMEABILITY COEFFICIENT AND OF THE MAXIMUM HEIGHT OF THE CAPILLARY RISE OF WATER FOR DETERMINING THE SATURATION OF SOIL IS EMPHASIZED. THE COULOMB LAW IS DEFINED, AND PROBLEMS CONCERNING THE COHESION AND STABILITY OF SOILS ARE INVESTIGATED. DETAILS ARE GIVEN OF SEVERAL TYPES OF MEASURING APPARATUS. VARIATIONS IN WATER VAPOR PRESSURE WITH VARYING TEMPERATURE ARE BRIEFLY MENTIONED TOGETHER WITH THE "COLD WALL PRINCIPLE". /LCPC/RRL/
