Genesis and Structures of Cohesive Soils

  • Luigi Coppola
Chapter

Abstract

This chapter discusses the reticular bonds of clay minerals that break down because of alteration, giving rise to simple molecules and ions, some of which are washed out or escape as gas producing fractures in the ground.
