Abstract
The behaviour of swelling clays is better understood if the effect of the pore size structure on their hydromechanical behaviour is taken into account. In compacted (and therefore unsaturated) swelling clays, the pore size structure is set up during compaction but it may change significantly in response to various actions such as loading and hydration. Although the distribution of pore sizes is of course continuous, useful insights can be obtained by considered only two structural levels: micros...
