Methods of testing soil for engineering purposes, part C - soil classification tests, AS 1289.C6.3-1977, determination of the particle size distribution of a soil - standard method of fine analysis using a hydrometer

This method covers the quantitative determination of the particle size distribution in a soil from a coarse sand size down, using a hydrometer for particles finer than the 75 micrometer sieve. The method as described is not applicable if less than 10 percent of the material passes the 75 micrometer sieve as measured in AS 1289.C6.1. If used in combination with AS 1289.C6.2 This method covers the determination of particles finer than the 75 micrometer sieve. Separate sections relate to apparatus, reagents, calibration of hydrometer, procedure, calculations and reporting of results.
