MINERALOGICAL COMPOSITION AND FABRIC AS RELATED TO THE MECHANICAL BEHAVIOR OF THE FINE – GRAINED PLIO-PLEISTOCENE SEDIMENTS OF ACHAIA, GREECE (EN)

Kouki, A.

The fine grained sediments of the Plio-Pleistocene deposits of Achaia have been distinguished into two geotechnical units, stratigraphically successive, the Upper and the Lower one. A number of tests were performed in samples from both units in order to determine their mineralogical composition and fabric, as well as their CaCO3 content. From these it is shown that the two units present main differences in mineralogical composition, type and percentage of clay minerals, concretion ratio and calcium carbonate content, which directly affect their mechanical behavior in construction of technical works.
