Atterberg limits test



A clayey soil can exist in four states depending on the water content, which are: solid, semi-solid, plastic and liquid. In each state, the consistency and behavior of a soil is different, as are its engineering properties. The Atterberg limits are a basic measure of the critical water contents that separates one state from another

Our soil laboratory software “CiviLab” facilitates the processing of the Atterberg limit test and reduces the time required to process the test outcomes, also CiviLab allows you to properly archive test reports and provide high quality reports

In the Atterberg limits test you can use our soil software "CiviLab" to:

  • Draw the curve of the water content as a function of the numbers of blow ;
  • Calculate the Liquid limit WL;
  • Plastic limit WP;
  • Calculate the Plasticity index PI;
  • Drawing Casagrand’s Abacus;
