Department of Civil Engineering. Amin Rafiei North Carolina State University. CE342: Geotechnical Engg. Solution to Problem 2.(1.12) Results from hydrometer tests (percentages) are based on fine grained section of the soils. For Example : % fine grained soil in soil A = 33.65% % finer than 0.05 mm in soil A = 22.6% * 33.65% = 7.6% (a) Sieve Number #4 #10 #20 #40 #100 #200 Hydrometer Test Results Sieve Size(mm) 4.75 2 0.85 0.425 0.15 0.075 0.05 0.01 0.005 0.002 Weight Retained-Soil A 0 20.2 25.7 60.4 98.1 127.2 Finer(%)-Soil A 100 95.9584 90.8163 78.7315 59.1036 33.6535 0.07606 0.0464 0.0411 0.0168 Weight Retained-Soil B 0 48.1 219.5 67.3 137.2 22.1 Finer(%)-Soil B 100 90.3762 46.4586 32.9932 5.54222 1.12045 0.00253 0.0015 0.0014 0.0006

### 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.
