Prakash, K and Sridharan, A (2010) Sediment Volume Tests for Expansive Soil Identification and Classification. In: Journal of Testing and Evaluation, 38 (6). pp. 700-706.Full text not available from this repository.
Equilibrium sediment volume tests are conducted on field soils to classify them based on their degree of expansivity and/or to predict the liquid limit of soils. The present technical paper examines different equilibrium sediment volume tests, critically evaluating each of them. It discusses the settling behavior of fine-grained soils during the soil sediment formation to evolve a rationale for conducting the latest version of equilibrium sediment volume test. Probable limitations of equilibrium sediment volume test and the possible solution to overcome the same have also been indicated.
