    Gens Solé, Antonio; Vállejan, Beatriz; Sánchez, M.; Imbert, Cristophe; Villar, Maria Victoria; Van Geetl, Maarten (2011-03)
    Article
    Open Access
    The paper describes a theoretical and experimental study of the coupled hydromechanical behaviour of a compacted mixture of bentonite powder and bentonite pellets intended as sealing material in underground repositories ...
  • Mechanical behaviour of heavily compacted bentonite under high suction changes 

    Lloret Morancho, Antonio; Villar, María Victoria; Sánchez, M.; Gens Solé, Antonio; Pintado Llurba, Xavier; Alonso Pérez de Agreda, Eduardo (Institution of Civil Engineers (http://www.ice.org.uk/), 2003)
    Article
    Open Access
    The paper reports the results of an experimental study carried out on a bentonite compacted to a dry density of up to 1·7 Mg=m3, a high value for this type of soil. The soil fabric has been studied using a variety of ...
  • Secondary compression of clays as a local dehydration process 

    Navarro, Vicente; Alonso Pérez de Agreda, Eduardo (Institution of Civil Engineers (http://www.ice.org.uk/), 2001)
    Article
    Open Access
    Long-term volumetric deformations of clays are interpreted in terms of water transfer from clay aggregates to the bulk water. Chemical potentials for the two states of water are first derived and then integrated into balance ...
