Abstract

The Casagrande Cup method has been the preferred method of finding the liquid limit in Denmark for many years. It is however stated by the Danish Standards Association, that the Fall Cone test, is to be preferred when possible. The comparability of the Casagrande and the Fall Cone method has been shown in numerous papers. However the comparability is still fairly undocumented on the plastic danish tertiary clay, like the Søvind Marl. Based on a serie of tests carried out on Søvind Marl, the liquid limit from the Casagrande Cup and the Fall Cone apparatus are compared.

The Loss on Ignition on non organic materials has been suggested as a new and fast way to classify clay and determine the plasticity index up to an Ip of 60 %. A serie of tests using traditional means, the Casagrande Cup, and Loss on Ignition have been carried out, and the results are compared, to assess whether this method can be used on Søvind Marl.
