Simultaneous determination of volumic weight and shape factor of clay materials using a dynamic method

Written by sctunisie no comments

We show in this paper that two important characteristics of a particulate solid, the particle density and the mean shape factor of the grains, can be determined simultaneously by a dynamic method based on pressure drop measurements of flowing fluids across a granular bed of the solid. The materials investigated are crushed raw clays. The values of the densities obtained by this procedure agree well with those determined by the classic picnometric method.
