Synopsis It has been shown that the presence of exchangeable ions in clay systems leads to the presence of long-range repulsion forces between the particles. A comparison between the compression curves as observed and as calculated from theoretical considerations indicates that in the case of suspensions of pure clays the compressibility can be accounted for quantitatively by the consideration of these long-range forces only. On a montré que la présence d'ions interchangeables dans des constitutions d'argile provoque l'apparition de forces répulsives à grande distance entre les particules. Une comparaison entre les courbes de compression observées et calculées d'après des considérations théoriques indique que dans le cas de suspensions d'argiles pures on peut évaluer la compressibilité quantitativement par la seule considération de ces forces à grande distance.
