The effect of clay content on liquid limit from a fall cone and the British cup device


, : The effect of clay content on liquid limit from a fall cone and the British cup device. ASTM Geotechnical Testing Journal 8(2): 91-95

The many shortcomings of the Casagrade cup device, used almost univerally to determine the liquid limit of soils, led to the investigation of fall cones as alternatives. Tests conducted using a British/French fall cone and a British cup device reveal that the difference in liquid limit values between these two devices is related to the amount of clay in the soil. The fall cone method is a rational alternative to the cup device.--Modified journal abstract.
