From the considerations of the truncated diffuse double layer due to partial saturation, an equilibrium equation is written in terms of the soil state parameter viz. void ratio, e, void ratio at liquid limit, e=wG, degree of saturation, S and external applied stress, p. The type of fine grained soil is subdued by its liquid limit. The viability of the formulated approach has been experimentally verified. This approach, essentially eliminates the difficulty in the measurement of pore air pressure, u pore water pressure, u and computation of \Gv parameter.
