The following data were obtained by conducting liquid limit and plastic limit tests on a soil collected from the site.

Liquid limit tests:

images

Plastic limit test: PL = 19.3%

a. Draw the flow curve and determine the liquid limit.

b. Using the Casagrande plasticity chart (Figure 4.21), determine the soil type.

(a)

To determine

Draw the flow curve and find the liquid limit.

Explanation

Given information:

The plastic limit of the soil PL is 19.3 %.

Calculation:

Draw the graph between the number of flows and moisture content as in Figure 1.

Refer Figure 1...

(b)

To determine

Find the type of the soil using the Casagrande plasticity chart.
