Determination of soil consistency

Tomislav Glavaš

Abstract

The problem of determining consistency of a coherent soil is analyzed based on laboratory and field testing and comparisons are made between practical geotechnical procedures used in Croatia and worldwide. According to the authors, the categories of soil consistency should be linked to consistency index, while categories determined according to the undrained strength of soil should denote categories of soil stiffness. A system for soil consistency and stiffness classification in Croatia is proposed.
