Abstract
The paper describes the results of an experimental research aimed at studying the effects of relative humidity cycling on the degradation phenomena of two clayey rocks from North-East Spain, with particular emphasis on peak shear strength, low-strain stiffness and water permeability. Undisturbed samples were subjected to an extreme relative humidity cycle (between 15% and 99%) using the vapour transfer technique, before performing triaxial compression and water permeability tests. Rock stiffness...
