Sample text

This value is used for soil classification purposes and frequently appears in geotechnical engineering correlations. 3 m m sieve in Fig. 31, 55% of the soil would pass t h o u g h this sieve. If we make the sieve bigger, more soil would pass. On the other hand, if we make the sieve smaller, then less t h a n 55% of the soil would pass. To find the D60 value, draw a horizontal line at the 60% passing point. Where the horizontal line meets the curve, drop it d o w n to obtain the D60 value. See Fig.

Now let us use Fig. 31 to find D3o. As before, draw a line at the 30% passing line. 1 mm. Chapter I 33 Site Investigation and Soil Conditions Fig. 33 shows a sieve set. 7 gives a range of specific gravity values for soil and gravel components. 2 Geotechnical Engineering Calculations and Rules of Thumb Hydrometer Hydrometer tests are conducted to classify particles smaller than a no. 075 ram). When soil particles are mixed with water, larger particles settle quickly. On the other hand, smaller particles tend to float or settle at a low velocity.

9 Insert the hydrometer and obtain the hydrometer readings L. 9 The hydrometer reading provides grams of soil in suspension per liter of solution. 9 Obtain readings for different time periods, typically 2, 5, 15, 30, 60, 250, and 1,440 min. 9 Compute D for every reading. 9 Plot a graph between grams of soil per liter of water vs. D. 9 Soil particles will increase the density of water/soil mixture. Hence, initially L would be a lower value. As time passes, larger diameter particles settle. The density of the soil/water mixture would go down and the hydrometer would sink (L value would increase).
