Liquid Limit (LL)


Liquid Limit (LL)

“Liquid Limit (LL)” in the field of geological engineering, refers to the upper limit of the “plastic state.” This is a separation of the plastic phase and viscous liquid phase when measuring soil consistency. Mathematically, it is the water content (basing on the percent of dry weight), at which two sections of a soil sample (which are separate by a specific distance), minutely contact each other. However, they do not flow together when upon a sharp blow laboratory test.
