The Elastic Properties of Clay in Shales Sayers 2018

3 Elastic Stiffness Model of Clay in Shales. The anisotropic clay fabric of shales is the source of their anisotropy. Electron microscopy studies typically show that individual clay platelets in shales vary in orientation, but are locally aligned (Hornby et al., 1994; Schoenberg et al., 1996; Swan et al., 1989).

Rock physics models are constructed to describe elastic anisotropy of various fabrics in shales. A method is developed to invert elastic properties of the clay mixture in shales.

The clay fabric of shales is a strain gauge ScienceDirect

2020-9-1  The clay fabric of shales has been the subject of numerous studies by X-ray diffraction, goniometry, transmission, and more recently by synchrotron radiation (Haines et al., 2009; Wenk et al., 2019). All these studies have made it possible to properly characterize the clay fraction and its evolution in the context of macroscopic rock damage.

Shale Properties, Composition, Formation, Uses »

Clay Minerals are major component of shale and other similar rocks. The clay minerals represented are mostly kaolinite, montmorillonite and illite. Clay minerals of Late Tertiary mudstones are expandable smectites whereas in older rocks especially in mid- to early Paleozoic shales illites predominate.

A method of forming bricks, tiles, and the like by treating clay, shale or other clay ceramic raw materials containing pyrite is disclosed. Such clay, ceramic raw materials may be ground, and then mixed with an oxidizer in a pre-oxidation step to disperse the oxidizer within the clay to expose the maximum amount of clay surface to the oxidizer.
