Smectites: the relationship between their properties and isomorphic substitution

We have investigated the relationship between the degree of isomorphic substitution in smectites and the green compression strength of sand-smectite-water mixtures. Such a relationship is expressed by a simple mathematical expression which allows the technological behaviour of smectites to be predicted from their degree of isomorphic substitution.
