KurzbeschreibungThis course gives a comprehensive introduction in clay mineralogy, properties, characterising and testing methods as well as applied aspects and problems of clays and clay minerals in geotechniques. This course comprises of lectures with exercises, case studies, and demonstrated experiments.
LernzielUpon successful completion of this course the student is able to:
- Describe clay minerals and their fundamental properties
- Describe/propose methods for characterization of clays and clay minerals
- Draw conclusion about specific properties of clays with a focus to their potential use, problematics and things to consider in geotechniques and engineering geology.
Inhalt- Introduction to clays and clay minerals (importance and application in geosciences, industry and everyday life)
- Origin of clays (formation of clays and clay minerals, geological origin)
- Clay mineral structure, classification and identification incl. methods for investigation (e.g. XRD)
- Properties of clay materials, characterisation and quantification incl. methods for investigation (cation exchange, rheology, plasticity, shearing, swelling, permeability, retardation and diffusion)
- Clay Minerals in geotechniques: Problems and applications (e.g. soil mechanics, barriers, slurry walls)
SkriptLecture slides and further documents will be available in the lecture
