The reason that the onepoint method yields fairly good results is that a small range of moisture content is involved when N = 20–30. Another method of determining the liquid limit, which is popular in Europe and Asia, is the fall cone method (British Standard—BS 1377). 24a). Due to the difficulty in achieving the liquid limit from a single test, four or more tests can be conducted at various moisture contents to determine the fall cone penetration, d, in 5 s. A semilogarithmic graph can then be plotted with moisture content w versus cone penetration d.

Several theories have been presented in the past to describe the ion distribution close to a charged surface. Of these, the Gouy–Chapman theory has received the most attention. Let us assume that the ions in the double layers can be treated as point charges, and that the surface of the clay particles is large compared to the thickness of the double layer. 9 Derivation of repulsive potential equation. 10 Nature of variation of potential Φ with distance from the clay surface. 4) dx2 λ where λ is the dielectric constant of the medium.
