This document specifies methods for the determination of the liquid and plastic limits of a soil. These comprise two of the Atterberg limits for soils.
The liquid limit is the water content at which a soil changes from the liquid to the plastic state.
This document describes the determination of the liquid limit of a specimen of natural soil, or of a specimen of soil from which material larger than about 0,4 mm has been removed. This document describes two methods: the fall cone method and the Casagrande method.
NOTE The fall cone method in this document should not be confused with that of ISO 17892‑6.
The plastic limit of a soil is the water content at which a soil ceases to be plastic when dried further.
The determination of the plastic limit is normally made in conjunction with the determination of the liquid limit. It is recognized that the results of the test are subject to the judgement of the operator, and that some variability in results will occur.

This document is applicable to the execution, testing and monitoring of geotechnical grouting work.
Grouting for geotechnical purposes (geotechnical grouting) is a process in which the remote placement of a pumpable material in the ground is indirectly controlled by adjusting its rheological characteristics and by the manipulation of the placement parameters (pressure, volume and the flow rate).
The following principles and methods of geotechnical grouting are covered by this document:
-   displacement grouting (compaction and compensation grouting);
-   grouting without displacement of the host material (permeation, fissure/rock grouting, bulk filling).
The principal objectives of geotechnical grouting are:
-   the modification of the hydraulic/hydrogeological characteristics the ground;
-   the modification of the mechanical properties of the ground;
-   the filling of natural cavities, mine workings, voids adjacent to structures;
-   inducing displacement to compensate for ground loss or to stabilize and lift footings, slabs and pavements.
Specialized grouting activities, generally associated with structural and/or emergency works, are not covered by this document.
The execution, testing and monitoring of jet grouting work is not covered by this document and is covered by EN 12716.

This standard (Part 1) gives definitions, principles and general rules for the planning, design and specification of earthworks. It introduces the other parts of the standard, which have to be used together with Part 1.
It is applicable to all types of earth-structures, whatever their intended use is (roads, railways, airfields, waterways, buildings, landfills, tailing dams, etc.), except where listed below:
-   Some specific types of works such as the execution of trenches and small earthworks may be organized using simplified or specific rules;
-   Some structures, such as dykes and dams, need earthworks which have specific design and construction requirements: these may extend beyond the rules of this standard.

This European Standard applies to the treatment with binders of natural soils, weak and intermediate rocks (including chalk), recycled materials and artificial materials for the execution of earthworks during the construction and maintenance of roads, railways, airfields, platforms, dykes, ponds and any other types of earth structure.
It relates only to the treatment by layers for earthworks, as opposed to the treatment by columns for example.
The standard specifies the requirements for the constituents of the mixtures, the preliminary laboratory testing methodology, the laboratory performance classification, and the execution and control.
Note 1: The informative annexes also give example of good practices for execution and control.
The laboratory performance classification specified in this European Standard covers the two types of treatment : improvement and stabilization.
− For improvement, the classification takes into account the short term performance.
− For stabilization, the classification takes into account the medium to long term performance.
Note 2: For stabilization, the classification is based on the laboratory performance classification specified in EN 14227-15, except for the classification according to Rt and E which has been replaced by a performance classification according to Rt and E specific to earthworks.

This European Standard deals with underwater excavation and hydraulic placement of fill material for land reclamation projects providing structural support. The main focus is on soils that exhibit drained behaviour during and after placement.
This European Standard specifies minimum requirements for site related data to be acquired before the tender and execution stage of a dredging and land reclamation project.
This European Standard gives guidance on how the selection of the dredging equipment shall be undertaken. It also gives guidance on the selection of a borrow area.
This European Standard offers the general principles on how to design the actual execution of a hydraulic fill project and offers guidelines for monitoring and quality control of that execution in order to guarantee that the fill mass exhibits the behaviour as intended by the designer of the land reclamation.
This European Standard neither gives prescriptions nor recommendations or guidance on dredging of rock, mine tailings, mineral wastes and contaminated soils.
This European Standard aims at facilitating mutual understanding of all parties involved in designing the execution of a hydraulic fill project. It gives a framework to arrive at clear and unambiguous goals and arrangements. The main purpose of this European Standard is to ensure that functional requirements and specifications for such projects are in harmony with site boundary conditions and construction methods.

This document specifies two laboratory test methods for the determination of the effective shear
strength of soils under consolidated drained conditions using either a shearbox or a ring shear device.
This document is applicable to the laboratory determination of effective shear strength parameters for
soils in direct shear within the scope of geotechnical investigations.
The tests included in this document are for undisturbed, remoulded, re-compacted or reconstituted
soils. The procedure describes the requirements of a determination of the shear resistance of a
specimen under a single vertical (normal) stress. Generally three or more similar specimens from
one soil are prepared for shearing under three or more different vertical pressures to allow the shear
strength parameters to be determined in accordance with Annex B.
Special procedures for preparation and testing the specimen, such as staged loading and pre-shearing
or for interface tests between soils and other materials, are not covered in the procedure of this
document.
