Rahul R. Wankhade, Vaibhav R. Dhawale, Shrikant M. Harle


Shear strength of cohesive soils at consistency limits is considered to be constant and various apparatus are designed based on this, for easy determination of consistency limits. But there is a significant difference in the shear strength values quoted by different researchers. This study mainly deals with the systematic approach of determining the undrained shear strength of cohesive soil at consistency limits. In the present study shear strength of different soil sample at different locations are calculated. The graphical representations are also described in the present experimental investigations. For the city like Amravati this study shall be helpful for the construction work there.
