An investigation to relate some of the Atterberg Limits to the compression indices and specified void ratios of remolded clay samples from the vicinity of Stellenbosch was carried out. A parallel displacement of the Uquld limit (L.L.) versus compression Index (C) curve to that obtained by Skempton, was observed. A marked relationship was found between the plastic limit (P.L.) and an arbitrarily chosen void ratio (e). The rapid rrmfwd of performing~ the consolidation test as had been proposed by Hsuan-Loh Su,' was employed. Three samples were tested by means of the 24 hour conventional method to serve as a control to the rapid tndluxi. Satisfactory values of compression Indices were obtained from the rapid "",.(fwd. but values of the coefficient of consolidation (0,) were found to be too hl~h.
