The consistency of a soil sample changes with the amount of water present. Such changes in soil consistency may be accurately measured in the laboratory / field following standard procedures which determine the Atterberg Limits. These limits may then be used for judging the suitability of the soil. The liquid limit (LL) The percentage moisture content at which a soil changes with decreasing wetness from the liquid to the plastic consistency or with increasing wetness from the plastic to the liquid consistency. The plastic limit (PL) The percentage moisture content at which a soil changes with decreasing wetness from the plastic to the semi- solid consistency or with increasing wetness from the semi-solid to the plastic consistency. Smartapp plasticity index test app is built to follow the standard test methodology and reporting of test results. Flexibility is provided to specify permissible limits (to suit standards applicable) against which test results can be compared with.
