Abstract

Mixing and manipulation of soil and water cause consistency changes at various moisture contents. These changes reveal important characteristics of the soil even though the condition of the soil-water system is not the same as that found in nature. The characteristics of consistency have been correlated with engineering behavior of soil. Together with mechanical analysis, these relationships provide a basis for the identification and engineering classification of a soil and aid in judging its suitability for engineering structures.
