<p>Atterberg limits is a basic measure of the critical water content of fine-grained soils. These tests include shrinkage limit, plastic limit, and liquid limit, which are outlined in ASTM D4943.</p>
When the water content of a fine-grained soil is reduced below the plastic limit, shrinkage of the soil mass continues until the shrinkage limit is reached. This method of test covers the determination of the shrinkage limit, shrinkage ratio, volumetric shrinkage ...
Apparatus recommended to perform shrinkage limit test in accordance with specifications. Meets ASTM D427 AASHTO T92
Used for determining the maximum moisture content at which the soil does not shrink after drying the sample
Moisture contents at which soil has smallest plasticity is called limit. For determination purpose plastic limit is defined as the water content at which a soil will just begin to crumble when rolled into a thread of 3mm. Dia
