Tag: liquid limit Atterberg Limits and Plasticity

Atterberg limits, named after the Swedish soil scientist A. Atterberg, are water content values at which notable changes in soil behavior occur. The liquid limit , denoted LL or w L , marks the transition between liquid and plastic behavior. At water contents above the liquid limit the soil behaves as a viscous liquid; below the liquid limit the soil
