Soil Properties and the Unified Soil Classification System ...

2012-5-29  The USCS is based on: (a) the distribution (gradation) of various particle sizes, and (b) the plasticity characteristics of very fine particles. Particle-size distribution is determined from a gradation analysis test. In this test, soil is dried and then shaken through a series of sieves having progressively smaller openings.

Silt - Grain Size Criteria

The USDA system has been adopted by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). In the Unified Soil Classification System (USCS) and the AASHTO Soil Classification system, the sand-silt distinction is made at the 0.075 mm particle size (i.e., material passing the #200 sieve). Silts and clays are distinguished mechanically by their plasticity.

Chapter 4 Engineering Classification of Rock Materials

particle is an intact fragment of rock material whose shape and size are initially defined by the discontinui-ties that form its margins. Discrete rock particles may occur in their place of origin, such as fractured, bro-ken, or jointed in situ rock, where particles retain their original form and size or moved from their place of

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) soil classification system is relatively simple to apply while the Unified Soil Classification System (USCS) is more complex. As a result, the USDA system, or a similar method, is more commonly used. However, unless taking direct measurements, the USCS classification is needed to determine soil strength.

A Random Forest model for predicting soil USCS classifications was tested. USDA textural class by itself is a poor predictor of USCS classification. Additional soil property variables are needed to accurately predict USCS class. The use of USDA–USCS crosswalk tables should be avoided.

Aids to size identification; The range of particle sizes encountered in soil is very large: from boulderswith a controlling dimension of over 200mm down to clayparticles less than 0.002mm (2mm). Some clays contain particles less than 1 mmin size which behave as colloids, i.e. do not settle in water due solely to gravity.
