MEASUREMENT OF THE GRADING OF SOILS AND CORRELATION WITH THE PROCTOR DENSITY

MESURE DE LA GRADATION DES SOLS ET CORRELATION AVEC LA DENSITE PROCTOR.

This paper presents a method for evaluating quantitatively the grading of soils. It is based on the description of the granulometric representation of soil in a bi-logarithmic diagram. The study of the correlation between the maximum Proctor density and the grading has been made a function of the percentage of fines and plasticity; this study demonstrates the usefulness of the grading coefficient proposed and indicates the limits of the range within which it forms a useful identification parameter. /TRRL/
