Characteristics of soil-peat-rubble mixtures by mercury intrusion porosimetry

Characteristics of soil-peat-rubble mixtures by mercury intrusion porosimetry

International Agrophysics 16(3): 177-181

The effect of cyclic changes of temperature and the addition of organic matter on pore properties of model urban soil was investigated. Mixtures composed from a loessial soil with 10-50% w/w of rubble and 6% w/w of peat were studied. The mixtures were moistened to 25% of their field water capacity and subjected to cyclic changes of temperature. Before and after the cycles, granulometric composition, organic matter content and mercury intrusion porosimetry studies were performed.
