A sieve analysis (or gradation test) is a practice or procedure used (commonly used in civil engineering) to assess the particle size distribution (also called gradation) of a granular material by allowing the material to pass through a series of sieves of progressively smaller mesh size and weighing the amount of material that is stopped by each sieve as a fraction of the whole mass.

Basic characteristics of soils Size range of grains. Aids to size identification; The range of particle sizes encountered in soil is very large: from boulderswith a controlling dimension of over 200mm down to clayparticles less than 0.002mm (2mm). Some clays contain particles less than 1 mmin size which behave as colloids, i.e. do not settle in water due solely to gravity.

As per the Indian standard particle size classification, clay has a particle size < 0.002 mm. Silt is coarser than clay, with a particle size of 0.002-0.075 mm. Sand, with a particle size of 0.075-4.75 mm, is subdivided into fine, medium, and coarse, as shown in Fig. 6.4.

May 01, 2019· The size of individual particles has an important influence on the behavior of soils. It is a general practice to classify the soils into four broad groups, namely; gravel, sand, silt size and clay size. Classification based on particle size is of immense value in the case of coarse-grained soils rather than fine-grained soils because the behavior of such soils depends mainly on the particle ...
