Date of submission: -  18 / 09 / 08 Abstract I carried out three experiments. In the first experiment, I carried out a sieve analysis test  on a sample of rocks. Through this experiment, I was capable of determining the  percentage retained and the percentage passing of rocks that were involved in the sieve  analysis test. Furthermore in this experiment, I was capable of studying the mechanisms  of sieves and their possible applications. In the second experiment I determined the plastic limit and the liquid limit. Finally I the  plasticity index using the casagrande method. 2

Data and Results 7 Conclusions 8 Applications 8 References 8 Appendix 8 Theory First Experiment The sieve analysis test is a method for grading the soil, rock and so on. In this method,  the sample is passed through sieves where different sizes of the sample particles are  captured onto the sieve. The sieve number indicates the number of openings per inch on  the sieve. During the test, sieves are placed from the largest size on top to the smallest  size on the bottom.

    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.
