Settling Velocity, Diameter, and Density for Flocs of Illite, Kaolinite, and Montmorillonite

Ronald J. Gibbs


The relation between floc settling velocity and diameter was measured for illite, kaolinite and montmorillonite. The curves between floc diameter and settling velocity show a non-Stokes' relation that indicated the floc density decreased or drag properties increased as the floes increased in size.
