    does the liquid limit cone penetrometer method and the kassagran method is the same.
    can use the kassagran plot sheet for test (form)
    thanks

    How I can use this apparatus for designing the farm equipments in heavy cotton soil? Actually we get soil strength or else? Reading units?

    Soil strength is a different parameter than liquid limit. You might look at pocket penetrometer or dynamic cone penetrometer test:

    The liquid limit minus the plastic limit is the plasticity index (PI); the range of moisture between plastic and liquid states where the soil shrinks and swells. High PI clays are bad for construction, as they cause movements and distress to foundations.
