INTRODUCTION: This experiment concerns three common test performed on soils: a sedimentation test to determine a particle size distribution and Liquid / Plastic limit test to determine two of the Atterberg limit. The objectives of this experiment are to perform sedimentation test to find a particle size distribution and perform Atterberg tests to find liquid limit & plastic limit. PROCEDURE: For the sedimentation test, transferred the soil-dispersion agent slurrg sample by stirred to the sedimentation cylinder and filled the cylinder with water up to 1000ml. Placed the hydrometer into the cylinder and record the value in 15sec, 30sec, 45sec, 1min, 1.5min, 2min, 3min, 4min, 5min, 7min, 10min, 15min, 30min, and 60min. For the liquid limit test, obtained sample from the LL container and from a groove in the brass cup. Lift the drop the brass cup using hand crank, recorded the total number of revolution when closed length of groove becomes 13mm. Took 5g of the sample and weighted the weight. Three samples were taken from three different range of total

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
