The mechanical sieve analysis data for three soils is given in the following table. For each soil: a. Plot the grain size distribution curve on five-cycle semi-logarithmic paper (or an spreadsheet plot with 5 log cycles on the x-axis). Note: all three grain size distributions should be plotted on the same graph. b. Determine D 10 , D 30 , and D 60 . c. Determine the coefficient of curvature (C c ), and the uniformity coefficient (C u ). d. Gradation of the soil (Well, poor, or gap graded). e. Classify the soil according to the Unified Soil Classification System (USCS). (Remember to show your work/steps.) Sieve # or Size Soil 1 % Passing (by wt.) Soil 2 % Passing (by wt.)

### What students are saying

• 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.
