extra sensitive


quick (can be up to 150)

Most cohesive soil deposits have II values within the range 1.0-0.0. The lower the value of w, the greater the amount of compression that must have taken place and the nearer IL will be to zero.

If w is less than the test value of the plastic limit then II < 0.0 and the soil cannot be remoulded (as it is outside the plastic range). In this case the soil is most likely a compressed sediment. Soil in this state will have a cu value varying from 50 to 250kN/m2.
