Fall Cone

Geonor_fall-cone-apparatusThe Fall Cone Apparatus, first introduced in 1915, provides a rapid, simple and accurate method for determining empirically the undrained shear strength, the shear strength of remolded samples and thus the sensitivity of clays. The equipment is also used for determination of liquid WL (or fineness number WF). Four cones of different weights and apex angles are provided.
