APPARATUS FOR THE RAPID DETERMINATION OF FINE-GRAIN PARTICLES IN COURSE-GRAINED SOILS AND CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS (IN GERMAN)

THE NEW METHOD WAS DEVELOPED IN THE CENTRAL LABORATORY OF STRABAG BAU AG, AND PERMITS THE MEASUREMENT OF FINE GRAINS IN COARSE-GRAINED SOILS AND MATERIALS WITH AN ACCURACY EQUAL TO THAT OF THE COMBINED SIEVE AND SLURRY ANALYSIS. THE MAIN FEATURES OF THE METHOD ARE AS FOLLOWS: THE WEIGHTS OF THE MATERIALS UNDER WATER ARE DETERMINED INSTEAD OF THE DRY WEIGHTS OF BOTH FRACTIONS; THE SAID WEIGHTS ARE DETERMINED BY MEANS OF CALIBRATED CONTAINERS WHICH SINK INTO THE WATER AND INDICATE THE WEIGHT ON A SCALE; AND THE SAMPLE IS NOT DIVIDED INTO FINE AND COARSE FRACTIONS BEFORE SEDIMENTATION, BUT TAKEN AS A WHOLE. /FG/RRL/
