Particle type specific
1. Siliciclastic sedimentary rocks (Quartz, Feldspars, Clays,
Lithic Fragments, Micas, etc.) 2. Shales and Mudstones (grain to "matrix" content) 3. Volcaniclastic sedimentary rocks (vitric fragments and ash,
phenocrysts, lithics ) 4. Carbonate sedimentary rocks (skeletal grains, nonskeletal
grains and matrix) 5. Organic sedimentary rocks (kerogen content, coal grade etc.) Siliciclastic Sedimentary Rocks

Sorry, but we have to talk a bit about physics (and about how airplanes fly) Real Fluid Flow & "entrainment"
Entrainment is synonomous with: "initiation of grain movement" (from Blatt, H, Middleton, G. and Murray, R., 1980. Origin of Sedimentary Rocks. Prentice Hill, 782 p) Blatt, Rocks.
