Please note that this is a scanned copy of a paper originally published in 1993, so the text is not as clear as in documents created as pdf files.

The filter paper method of soil suction determination to establish the state of desiccation in clay soil profiles is increasingly used, but is not yet included in the British Standard for soil testing. This paper provides guidance for carrying out the test on disturbed and undisturbed soil samples. 4 pages.
