GEOTECHNICAL CLASSIFICATION OF SOILS. 2. MECHANIZATION OF THE VON POST TEST FOR ORGANIC SOIL

CLASSIFICATION GEOTECHNIQUE DES SOLS - 2) MECANISATION DU TEST DE VON POST POUR LES SOLS ORGANIQUES

This article describes the equipment developed for the conduct of the von post wetting test in the laboratory, used for the geotechnical classification of organic soils. Analysis of the nature, colour and quantity of matter extracted from the organic soil sample enables the place of the soil in the von post wetting scale to be rationally determined. The colour is determined by reference to the munsell colour scale. (TRRL)
