Strength of soil aggregates and of aggregate beds in Impact of water and external forces on soil structure. Selected papers of the 1st Workshop on soilphysics and soilmechanics, Hannover 1986.

DEXTER, A. R.

Description :
The crushing test on soil aggregates of irregular shape is calibrated against the Brazilian test for cylinders. Factors affecting the strength of soil aggregates are reviewed. These include water content, wetting and drying cycles, and age hardening. The stresses on individual aggregates in random beds of uniform aggregates are analysed. Changes in the structure of beds of aggregates with compaction and with rainfall are compared.
