It is showngraphically on a particle size distribution curve. It is done in two ways(1)Sieve Analysis–(a)Dry sieve Analysis for coarse grained soils particle size greater than 75micron–set of sieves used of gravel fraction- 20 mm, 10 mm, 4.75 mm sand fraction 2 mm, 1mm, 600ΞΌ, 425 ΞΌ , 212 ΞΌ , 150 ΞΌand 75 ΞΌ –(b)wet sieve analysis is employed if the soil containssubstantial quantity of fine particles.
