Soils classified into Groups A-1, A-2, and A-3 are granular materials, where 35% or less of the particles pass through the No. 200 sieve. Soils where more than 35% pass through the No.

Am. Soc. Civ. 11 GRAIN-SIZE DISTRIBUTION OF SOIL For a basic understanding of the nature of soil, the distribution of the grain size present in a given soil mass must be known. The grainsize distribution of coarse-grained soils (gravelly and/or sandy) is ­determined by sieve analysis.

S. standard sieves Sieve no. 053 The cumulative percent by weight of a soil passing a given sieve is referred to as the percent finer.

A natural deposit with w N ≥ LL will have a liquidity index greater than 1. In an undisturbed state, these soils may be stable; however, a sudden shock may transform them into a liquid state. Such soils are called sensitive clays. 10 ACTIVITY Since the plastic property of soil is due to the adsorbed water that ­surrounds the clay particles, we can expect that the type of clay minerals and their proportional amounts in a soil will affect the liquid and plastic limits. Skempton (1953) observed that the plasticity index of a soil linearly increases with the percent of clay-size fraction (percent finer than 2μ by weight) present in it.
