The liquid limit of clay treated with electrolytes were investigated and examined with respect to electrolyte types and concentration, time-dependent effects, and mineralogy of clay. The findings indicated that the types and concentration of electrolytes in the pore fluid of clay have a marked effect on the liquid limit of clay. Ageing has a pronounced effect on the liquid limit, particularly for clay treated with cementing agents
