Re: Compaction/expansion


Hi Bruno,

can I ask you which is actually the difference between the isotropic compaction method and the expansion method? Which one do you prefer and why? I guess if the uniformity of the obtained porosity can be influenced by this choice.
Hi, I'm not Bruno but I've read his thesis, so I can answer a little :
if I remember well, expansion gives indeed samples that are more homogeneous than those obtained by compaction method.
