Atterberg Limits as Indices of External Surface Areas of Soils1
- J. E. Hammel,
- M. E. Sumner and
- J. Burema2
Surface area measurements on soils are usually laborious and require expensive equipment. The relationship between Atterberg limits (plastic and liquid) and surface area is investigated with a view to being able to estimate the latter from the former. The results show that there is a very strong relationship (r2 > 0.9) which permits surface area to be estimated rapidly and cheaply.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
