Skip to Main Content

Slurry colloidal and particle interaction theory is described and applied to clay mineral suspensions. Mechanisms which affect the colloidal properties of the dewatering behaviour of clay mineral suspensions are described, after which the processes of coagulation and flocculation are discussed. Finally, sedimentation and self-weight consolidation are discussed as the mechanisms by which a low-density slurry transitions to a high-density slurry or soil.
