Liquid Limit - LQLM

This test procedure was employed in the Foresight Ceramic Database and now is available for those having an account at Insight-Live.com. Accumulating test data using the variables defined in these procedures enables us to create tools that enable you to compare the physical properties of materials and recipes.


Quoted on bentonite data sheets. The liquid limit is the water content above which the clay shows liquid behavior (essentially no shear strength). It is generally done as part of soil analysis and is related to plastic limit (water of plasticity) and shrinkage limit. The liquidity index and plasticity index can be calculated from these measurements.
