Hi, I'm a geotechnical engineer and I have done so many projects. However, there are some things that i don't quite understand. Usually, we conduct moisture contents and samples across the investigated depth. We evaluate these numbers in line with the results and know the soil' existing state, if it's about plastic limit, lower than plastic limit, liquid limit, etc.

I just don't understand. We have been doing this but I don't know why we are doing this. Aside from that, I want to know if the moisture content results have other uses.

Have you tried a bit of googling with search terms such as:

"moisture contents and samples across the investigated depth. We evaluate these numbers in line with the results and know the soil' existing state, if it's about plastic limit, lower than plastic limit, liquid limit"

and

"what is the purpose of soil plasticity tests"

and found these?
