Geotechnical properties of silica gels

Magued Iskander, Samer Sadek, Louis Ge

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Silica gel is a colloidal form of silica, which resembles coarse white sand. It is primarily used as a desiccant for packaging. When mixed with a pore fluid having a matched refractive index it resembles transparent sand. In this chapter, the physical, geotechnical, and dynamic properties of some silica gels are discussed in detail.
