CEE300/TAM324 HW25 The table below shows the sieve analysis results for an aggregate sample. Sieve (mm) Amount Retained (g) 4.75 0 2.36 33 2.00 57 1.18 86 0.60 145 0.30 40 0.15 73 0.075 58 pan 16 (a) Calculate the cumulative percent passing for each sieve. First, all the amounts retained are summed to find out that M tot = 508 Next, the percents retained are calculated by the following equation and stated in the table below. %࠵?࠵?࠵?࠵?࠵?࠵?࠵?࠵? = ࠵? +,-./0,1 ࠵? -2-.3 Then, the cumulative percent retained is found by summing the % Retained as the aggregate passes the sieves as shown in the 4 th column of the table. ࠵?࠵?࠵?࠵?࠵?࠵?࠵?࠵?࠵?࠵? %࠵?࠵?࠵?࠵?࠵?࠵?࠵?࠵? = %࠵?࠵?࠵?࠵?࠵?࠵?࠵?࠵? Finally, the percent passing for each sieve is found by %࠵?࠵?࠵?࠵?࠵?࠵?࠵? = 1 − %࠵?࠵?t࠵?࠵?࠵?࠵?࠵? Sieve Size (mm) Amount Retained

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
