Research on the Criterion and Classification of Swelling Rock
Criterion and classification are two important content of swelling soft rock research. On the basis of the study of predecessors’ achievements, the percentage of hydrophilic minerals is considered as a key index of the new standard, and the saturated water absorption, limit swelling increment, limit swelling force are considered as main indexes. Finally, the new standard is used to analyze and study on the projects in references.
