Physlcochemlcal Components of Swelling The surface structure of the clay minerals is such that water mole­ cules are strongly attracted to them. This adsorptive effect is respon-sllDle for a portion of the water required to satisfy the swelling tendency of a soil. In addition to

Crystalline and Osmotic Swelling of an Expansive Clay ...

2013-3-1 · Compacted expansive clays swell due to crystalline swelling and osmotic/double layer swelling mechanisms. Crystalline swelling is driven by adsorption of water molecules at clay particle surfaces that occurs at inter-layer separations of 10–22 Å. Diffuse double layer swelling occurs at inter-layer separations >22 Å. The tendency of compacted clay to develop osmotic or double layer swelling ...

Modification of the swelling characteristics and ...

2016-10-1 · The Swelling Index (SWI) of clay was reduced at low pH probably because of the abundance of H + in the solution, which may have concentrated in the double-layer space and combined with the exposed oxygen atoms at the clay edge. This would have resulted in positively charged clay edges that were attracted to the negatively charged clay surfaces ...

Clay stabilization - ScienceDirect

2015-1-1 · Electro-osmotic swelling can occur only in clay minerals that contain exchangeable cations in the interlayer region. This type of swelling may yield significantly larger expansion than crystalline swelling. Sodium-saturated smectites have a strong tendency toward electro-osmotic swelling. In contrast, potassium-saturated smectites do not swell ...

2014-6-12 · The amount of clay in the samples varied from 1.38 to 5.5wt.% in montmorillonite-coated samples and from 2.0 to 6.84wt.% in kaolinite-coated samples. Permeability measurements were performed on each sample to investigate the impact of clay content and grain size on permeability reduction as a result of clay swelling.

Prediction of swelling pressure of clays (Journal Article ...

2021-10-22 · Abstract. The mathematical formulation of the swelling pressure of pure clay was verified experimentally by Bolt (1956). However, in naturally occurring clays a statistical model is preferable, with chemico-physical properties such as specific surface area or particle spacing represented by simple indicative parameters.

2014-7-25 · Furthermore, important insights into the underlying mechanism of clay swelling from the one-layer to the two-layer hydrate are derived. It turns out that, for this case, clay swelling proceeds via the migration of counterions that are initially bound to the mineral surface to the central interlayer plane where they become fully hydrated. The ...
