Re: Need opinion on soil condition

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I just received a soils report for a project we are designing
in south Orange County. It states that the plasticity index of
the soil is 14. the 94 UBC pages 2-116 thru 2-119 show charts
with ordinates starting at an index of 15. does that mean that
the soil is non expansive ? maybe some of our soil brethern
would care to answer.
