Shrinkage Limit of Soil
Plastic Limit Set
IS 2720 (PART-VII) ASTM D-42, BS 1377 AASHTO T 90
Moisture contents at which soil has smallest plasticity is called limit. For determination purpose plastic limit is defined as the water content at which a soil will just begin to crumble when rolled in to a thread of 3mm dia.
The complete set consists of one each :
  •  Glass plate 20cm x 15cm having round ends
  •  Brass or stainless steel rod 3mm dia x 150mm long
  •  Flexible spatula 15 cm
  •  Set of 6 moisture containers
  •  Porcelain basin 150mm dia
  •  Plastic wash bottle 500ml
Shrinkage Limit Set
IS 2720 (PART-VII) ASTM D 427, BS 1377, AASHTO T 92.
Shrinkage limit is the maximum water content at which a reduction in water content does not cause an appreciable reduction in volume of the Soil Mass. At shrinkage limit, on further reduction in water, air enters in to the voids of soils and thus keeps the volume constant. The apparatus can be used to determine shrinkage limit and to calculate other shrinkage ratio, shrinkage index and volumetric shrinkage.

Set consists of one each:
  •  Porcelain evaporating dish
  •  Shrinkage dish
  •  Glass cup
  •  Perspex plate with three metal prongs
  •  Flexible spatula 100mm
  •  Glass cylinder
  •  25ml x 1ml, supplied without mercury
  •  Plastic wash bottle 500ml
Linear Shrinkage Mould
BS 1377-2
A simple mould which is filled with the soil under test. This is then dried and the resulting decrease os length of the specimen measured is expressed as the linear shrinkage. It is 25mm Dia. x 12.5mm Height x 140mm Length.
