In the paper some results on the effects of chemo-physical evolution of clay-lime-water suspensions on the microstructure of a lime treated kaolin have been presented. A multi-scale investigation on the sedimentation behaviour of clay suspensions under different pore water chemistry has been developed highlighting the chemo-physical mechanisms controlling particle arrangement and the soil fabric formation. The results evidenced the key role of ionic exchange in the short term on the microstructure features of the lime treated soil.
