details are given of the bentonite shield, a new machine which is claimed to reduce the costs of tunnelling through non-cohesive ground. it is similar to other excavator shields designed for soft ground tunnelling, except that the cutting head revolves in a sealed chamber filled with a thixotropic slurry of bentonite clay pumped in under pressure.

Bentonite Application of Bentonite Slurry in Civil

2017-12-5  Bentonite Slurry in civil engineering. Bentonite slurry is a combination of sodium bentonite and slurry. A slurry is a thin sloppy mud or cement or, in extended use, any fluid mixture of a pulverized solid with water, often used as a convenient way of handling solids in bulk. This combination is frequently utilized to form a solid protective barrier in the ground.

Bentonite an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Bentonite is an off-white montmorillonite clay formed from altered volcanic ash. It has a sheet-silicate structure and is especially notable for the way in which it absorbs and loses water and for its base-exchange properties. Sodic bentonite can absorb up to 10 times its own weight in water and can swell to 18 times its dry volume.
