This booklet brings jointly a complete of forty eight contributions (including five keynote papers) which have been awarded on the second foreign Workshop at the program of X-ray CT for Geomaterials (GeoX 2006) held in Aussois, France, on 4-7 October, 2006.

The contributions disguise quite a lot of issues, from primary characterization of fabric habit to functions in geotechnical and geoenvironmental engineering. contemporary advances of X-ray expertise, and software program also are mentioned. As such, this may be important interpreting for somebody attracted to the applying of X-ray CT to geomaterials from either primary and utilized perspectives.Content:

This monograph is a follow-up fabric to the 1st FRRPP ebook by way of Gerard Caneba in 2009. It comprises extra conceptual effects, implementation of the FRRPP approach in emulsion media to supply a variety of block copolymers, and different FRRPP-related supplementary subject matters. Conceptual subject matters contain the applying of the quantitative research awarded within the first FRRPP monograph for the incidence of the FRRPP method to the polysterene-styrene-ether (PS-S-Ether) and poly(methacrylic acid)-methacrylic acid-water (PMAA-MAA-Water) platforms, in addition to extensions via unsteady kingdom research of the incidence of flat temperature profiles.

Advances in X-ray Tomography f o r Geornaterials Edited by Jacques Desrues, Gioacchino Viggiani & Pierre BBsuelle Copyright 0 2006, ISTE Ltd. jp Engineering properties of man-made composite geo-materials are discussed. Although the properties can be discussed without X-ray CT scanners, micro-focus X-ray CT scanners will be a powerful tool for investigating what happens in the materials.

It is usually considered that X-ray CT scanners are unsuitable for observing the inner density structure of clays, because clay particles are too small and specimens made of clay are too homogeneous. However, such materials as lightweight artificial mixed materials are inhomogeneous in density, and so changes of the inner structure with environmental changes can be observed with an X-ray CT scanner. Cement treated clay has high strength and favorable characteristics for geomaterials but it is very brittle because of its high strength, so research on improving the ductility of cement treated clay has been conducted, such as by Keynote lectures 55 mixing tire chips with the clay.
