Abstract

Three-dimensional volume shrinkage was characterized on soil clods and one-dimensional behavior geometry of shrinkage was also determined for undisturbed core samples at different ripening stages and loads applied. It has been found that both volumetric shrinkage and geometry of shrinkage are transient characteristics of physical ripening. Significant physical changes were observed from both saturation and air entry points of the shrinkage curve. Geometry of such a soil is a continuous function of moisture ratio, ranging from unidimensional to isotropic shrinkage, depending on the ripening stage and load. -from Authors
