Discussion of “Atterberg Limits and Remolded Shear Strength—Water Content Relationships”



The present discussion tries to bring out the importance of clay mineralogical composition of fine-grained soils on their liquid limit behaviour. It reinforces the author's observation that the undrained shear strengths at liquid limit water content and at plastic limit water content are not unique.
