Abstract

The undrained shear strength of soil is a key engineering parameter, which is often linked to liquidity index (e.g. Vardanega and Haigh 2014). This linkage depends critically on the undrained strength of soil at the liquid limit, a subject on which there has been some debate. The determination of the liquid limit is carried out using one of two general methods: ‘Casagrande cup’ or ‘fall cone’, depending on national standards.
