I'm considered a newbie in Getechnical Engineering field so I really need help, I would like to ask you kind sirs/madames about atterberg test... We use not to test soil samples which are classified as silty sand or sand for atterberg. But then they asked us to sieve it on a 200 to extract clay particles to use on an atterberg test. question is are the result of the said test of any help? Since clay particles are just few on the sample and does a silty sand or sand have a plastic limit considering clay particles were extracted from the said soil type? thank you and God bless.
