LIQUID LIMIT DETERMINATION. A COMPARISON REVIEW BETWEEN CASAGRANDES APPARATUS AND UPPALS PENETROMETER

THE LIQUID LIMIT OF CLAY IS GENERALLY DETERMINED BY THE WELL KNOWN CASAGRANDES APPARATUS. HOWEVER THE PROCEDURE INVOLVED IN USING THIS APPARATUS IS RATHER TIME CONSUMING AND FURTHERMORE IT IS DIFFICULT TO OBTAIN GOOD AND CONSISTENT RESULTS IN LEAN CLAYS. THE INTRODUCTION OF A METHOD WHICH CAN DEAL EQUALLY WELL WITH ALL TYPES OF CLAY WOULD BE ADVANTAGEOUS. INVESTIGATIONS RECENTLY HAVE BEEN CARRIED OUT AT THE CENTRAL ROAD RESEARCH INSTITUTE OF INDIA FOR THIS PURPOSE AND A SUITABLE METHOD WAS DEVISED BY DR. UPPAL. THE OBJECT OF THIS PAPER IS TO INVESTIGATE THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN UPPALS PENETROMETER AND CASAGRANDES APPARATUS AND ALSO THE APPLICABILITY OF THE PENETROMETER TO NORWEGIAN CLAYS. THE DATA USED IN THE ANALYSIS ARE OBTAINED FROM ROUTING INVESTIGATIONS BUT ONLY SAMPLES FROM A LIMITED AREA ARE INCLUDED. NO CONCLUSION CAN THEREFORE BE DRAWN FOR NORWEGIAN CLAYS IN GENERAL. /AUTHOR/
