Abstract

The discussers read the article by Kuriakose et al. (2017) with great interest, having completed another study on the variation of undrained strength with liquidity index (Vardanega and Haigh 2014). The authors draw attention to previous studies which use the w/w L (e/e L ) ratio to study the determination of the liquid limit (Nagaraj and Jayadeva 1981), and soil compressibility characteristics (e.g., Nagaraj and Murthy 1983, 1986; Griffiths and Joshi 1988). The discussers have some comments related to (a) the new relationships proposed by the authors and (b) whether the new method is sufficient to capture all the features of undrained strength variation, with changes in water content.
