This method is a procedure for immersing rock for erosion control in ethylene glycol and the observation of the effects of such immersion.
Potentially deleterious clays can be found in rock for erosion control. The industry does not have a current procedure to determine the presence of such clays. To serve the erosion control industry, it is in ASTMs best interest to develop a standard test procedure to address this situation.
KeywordsSwelling clays, montmorillonite
