Pyrite Induced Heave
Taylor, Cripps and Clarke (University of Sheffield) have published a paper on the identification of pyrite induced heave using chemical and structural assessments. The authors consider the use of chemical and structural assessments to determine whether pyritic heave caused structural damage in a number of case studies.
The paper, titled “The identification of pyrite induced foundation heave by chemical and structural assessments” follows prior research on the in-situ investigation of pyritic fill by the authors:
Taylor, A.J., Cripps, J.C., and Clarke, S.D. (2015). The effect of temperature and moisture content on the behaviour of pyritic fill: development of an in situ monitoring system.… Read the rest
