SWELL VERSUS SATURATION FOR COMPACTED CLAY. DISCUSSION AND CLOSURE

A discussion of a technical note with the aforementioned title by Robert W. Day, published in this journal (Volume 118, Number 8, August 1992), is presented. The discussion focuses on swell characteristics of compacted clay and methods of plotting data. Phatak and Kanitkar state that plotting percent swell versus time data on a log-log basis is a better way of identifying the end of the primary swell than in a semilogarithmic manner as performed by the author. Discussion is followed by closure from the author.
