The compaction behaviour of semi-plastic mixtures was examined by evaluating the humidity dependence of the bulk density taking the pressure as a parameter. The physical mechanisms involved are discussed. A theoretical statistico-mechanical model using some empirical assumptions is proposed to explain the density behaviour and good accordance is obtained both with our experimental data and with a previously derived empirical formula. ?? 1985.
