11 min. 11 min. Clayey soils Fair to poor 44 Advanced Soil Mechanics groups: A-1 through A-7. Soils classified into Groups A-1, A-2, and A-3 are granular materials, where 35% or less of the particles pass through the No. 200 sieve. Soils where more than 35% pass through the No. 200 sieve are ­classified into groups A-4, A-5, A-6, and A-7. These are mostly silt and claytype materials. Grain size Gravel: Fraction passing the 75 mm sieve and retained on No. S. sieve Sand: Fraction passing the No.

9 LIQUIDITY INDEX The relative consistency of a cohesive soil can be defined by a ratio called the liquidity index LI. 22) LL − PL PI where w N is the natural moisture content. 22 that, if w N = LL, then the liquidity index is equal to 1. Again, if w N = PL, the liquidity index is equal to 0. , LL ≥ w N ≥ PL), the value of the liquidity index varies between 1 and 0. A natural deposit with w N ≥ LL will have a liquidity index greater than 1. In an undisturbed state, these soils may be stable; however, a sudden shock may transform them into a liquid state.

The term 1/κ is generally referred to as the double-layer thickness. There are several factors that will affect the variation of the repulsive potential with distance from the surface of the clay layer. 13, respectively. For a given value of Φ0 and x, the repulsive potential Φ decreases with the increase of ion concentration n 0 and ionic valence v. 14. 11 Variation of nondimensional potential with nondimensional distance. 12 Effect of cation concentration on the repulsive potential. 13 Effect of ionic valence on the repulsive potential.
