Although the Guoy–Chapman theory has been widely used to explain the behavior of clay, there have been several important objections to this theory. A good review of these objections has been given by Bolt (1955). 16 Repulsive pressure midway between two parallel clay plates. 17 Repulsive pressure between sodium montmorillonite clay particles. 7 FLOCCULATION AND DISPERSION OF CLAY PARTICLES Repulsive force In addition to the repulsive force between the clay particles, there is an attractive force, which is largely attributed to the Van der Waal force.

The grain-size distribution can be used to determine some of the basic soil parameters, such as the effective size, the uniformity coefficient, and the coefficient of gradation. 29 Grain-size distribution of a sandy soil. The effective size of a soil is the diameter through which 10% of the total soil mass is passing and is referred to as D10.
