  The final 3 chapters describe methods of analysis of clays and soils. Clay in Engineering Geology contains material drawn from a wide variety of sources and, together with its literature review and indexes, will provide much of value to geologists, mineralogists, civil and geotechnical engineers concerned with applied clay Edition: 2. These are representative of materials referred to by many clay mineralogists as illite, hydromuscovite and K-bentonite. Gels of these compositions were treated hydrothermally at temperatures above °C and at pressures ab lb/in. 2. Natural illites and related minerals were also treated under the same conditions. The mixed-layer clay has a lattice spacing of Å that expands to Å when glycolated and contracts irregularly to Å when heated to °C; the clay is assumed to consist of 14 Å chloritic and 15 Å montmorillonitic material. Chlorite or mixed-layer clay, or both, generally are associated with rocks containing dolomite. The central section of the book deals with the properties of clays: their colloidal behavior, cation exchange, interaction with water, reactions on heating, catalytic properties, and reactions with organic compounds. Also discusses the chemical conditions that favor the formation of clays and their evolution or decomposition into other materials.

This book presents the state-of-the-art results of characterization of clays, clay minerals and ceramic materials based on clay minerals. The main goal of this work is to contribute to the rationalization of some important results obtained in the open area of clays and clay materials characterization. Moreover, this book also provides a comprehensive account on polymer and biopolymer-clay. The artifacts belonging to the ceramic heritage are mostly based on all clay types used by humans over the ages, because the sources of clays were easily available and people were interested to produce ceramics and pottery. This is the reason why the conservation of cultural heritage is of great concern. Ceramics (Greek κεράμιον Keramion) is a material obtained by shaping and firing clay.
