AS 1289.3.1.2-2009 (R2017)

Methods of testing soils for engineering purposes – Soil classification tests – Determination of the liquid limit of a soil – One point Casagrande method (subsidiary method)

Published by: 2009-01-01 / 2009-01-01 / 12 pages
AS 1289.3.1.2-2009 (R2017) sets out a method for determining the liquid limit of a soil, (that is, the
moisture content at which a soil passes from the plastic to the liquid state). The method is a
rapid method since it involves taking only one measurement of the moisture content. This
method is applicable only to cohesive fine-grained soils. The method may also be used on a
sample of soil in its natural state.

NOTE: If it is suspected that the liquid limit is above 120%, the Standard procedure of
AS 1289.3.1.1 will apply.
