Particle size distribution - soil compaction, Civil Engineering

Particle Size Distribution (Gradation):

The particle size distribution is determined by passing the aggregates through a set of standard IS sieves (Figure) and determining the percentage passing the sieve.

The result is expressed as in Table below.

Generally, coarse aggregates are those that are retained substantially on 4.75 mm sieve, and fine aggregates are those passing substantially 4.75 mm sieve.
