(cu – w) and (cu – ) relationships for remoulded clayey soils at high water content

 

The note deals with some curollaries ot the uniqueness, pointed out by Nagaraj and Jayadeva, of the modified

flow lines obtained through normalization of water contents by liquid limit values. The study of many soils of varying pla-

sticity of Southern italy has confirmed this concept of uniqueness and allowed, besides a new relationship tor determining

liquid limit using the cone penetrnmeter method [BS 1377, 1975] by just one penetration, the possibility (i) of determining,

in the range of high water contents, thc rcmouldcd undrained shear strength as a function of the ratio w/wL and (ii) of

using the cone penetromcter to measure the undrained shear strength.
