Abstract
The paper examines some aspects of the hydromechanical behaviour of argillaceous hard soils and weak rocks. After considering the wide variety of this class of materials, some common behaviour features are sought concerning compressibility, structure development, uplift and swelling, microfabric, anisotropy, effects of discontinuities and hydraulic properties. Those features are examined in the context of appropriate behaviour frameworks developed for this type of materials. Two themes are then ...
