Determine Liquid Limit of Soil Specimen by Casagrande Method

The liquid limit test of soil is a laboratory test used to measure the liquid limit of soil and its consistency when it is wet. This test is a part of atterberg limits test with plastic limit test as the other part. Liquid limit is defined as the water content at which a soil changes from a plastic state to a liquid state. The test is performed by a device called a Casagrande apparatus…

Soil Mechanics Laboratory Manual [PDF] Geotech Engineering Manual

To study about materials is very essential for civil engineers. Civil Engineers deal with variety of materials like concrete, cement, aggregates, soil, bricks and various others that are used to construct or to support some structural load. The ultimate destination of load for any structure is soil. Soil absorbs as well as dissipates the load by stress phenomenon. As stress is defined as force by…
