Variations in soil matric suctions with time were measured in soil samples to obtain information on the processes occurring as stable structural units develop during aging. Water stability of synthetic soil aggregates increases with time. At low water contents (less than 0.258 g/g) there was a rapid decrease in soil matric suction with time after pressing; this indicates an increase in the free energy state of water in the system. At higher water contents the rate of decrease in matric suction was smaller. At 0.258 g/g, suction remained constant with time. At water contents over 0.258 g/g, soil matric suction increased with time. (Author)
