Abstract : The general project of correlating soil properties with geologic information, one phase of which is described in this report, consists in comparing soil properties with soil types and with their geologic history and environment in order to determine what correlations are possible. If correlations are found to exist, it would be possible to reduce laboratory testing materially at sites where geologic information is available, and to obtain a better understanding of the behavior and properties of the soils. The purpose of this report is to present data and analyses from liquid tests, and correlations which may materially reduce the cost of performing this test.
