In sieve analysis, certain ranges of data are of interest D10, D50, D60, D90. By fitting and interpolating specific sections along the distribution curve, a better R2 value can be produced. Polynomial fitting has proven to be best for sieve analysis producing an R2 value of 1 nearly every time.
The sieve analysis grain size analysis is a test used in civil engineering to access the particle size distribution of a granular material. The sieve analysis can be performed on different type of granular materials including sands, crushed rock, clays, granite, feldspars, coal, soil, a wide range of manufactured powders, grain and seeds, down to a minimum size depending on the exact method.

Step-by-Step Sieve Analysis Test Procedure. The typical testing procedure consists of the following steps Weigh a dry soil sample which should be at least 500gr. Record the weight of the sieves and the pan that will be utilized during the analysis. Each sieve should be thoroughly cleaned up before the test.
A sieve analysis or gradation test determines the distribution of aggregate particles by size within a given sample. This information can then be used to determine compliance with design and production requirements. Data can also be used to better understand the relationship between aggregates or blends and to predict trends during production.
This motion has been found to be more efficient, and it also results in less loss during the test procedure. Read Also Field Density Test of Soil by Sand Replacement Method. Shaking Period A 10-minute shaking period is suggested in Sieve analysis of soil procedure. A large quantity sample required longer shaking than a smaller sample.

PROCEDURE Soil passing 4.75mm I.S. Sieve and retained on 75micron I.S. Sieve contains no fines. Those soils can be directly dry sieved rather than wet sieving. Wet Sieving If the soil contains a substantial quantity say more than 5 of fine particles, a wet sieve analysis is required. All lumps are broken into individual particles. 1.

Jun 15, 2016 Generally, Sand is classified as Zone I, Zone II, Zone III and Zone IV i.e. Coarser to Finer. There is sieve designation for each zone. Gradation is made in accord with the usage of the sand. There are testing sieves, consists of 4.75mm, 2.36mm,
Sieve analysis helps to determine the particle size distribution of the coarse and fine aggregates.This is done by sieving the aggregates as per IS 2386 Part I 1963. In this we use different sieves as standardized by the IS code and then pass aggregates through them and thus collect different sized particles left over different sieves.

Arrange the required no of sieves as per the contract or job requirement in a descending manner. i.e. keep the sieve having the largest size opening at the top and the smallest size opening at the bottom
Dry and Wet Sieve Analysis is carried out to quantitatively determine the ParticleGrain SizeDistribution for soil particles of size 75 micron and bigger. For soil particles of size 4.75mm and bigger,dry sieve analysis is done and for soil particles of size above 75 micron and below 4.75mm, wet sieveanalysis is also needed if the soil particles are coated by claysilt.

The sample is then placed into the drying oven for a period of 12 to 24 hours at a temperature of 105 o C 5 o C until all the watermoisture is extracted from the sample.
Sieve analysis can be used only for the mechanical analysis of gravel and sand as the smallest sieve size available is 75 nm 0.075 mm. To determine the grain size distribution of silt and clay and hence to get the grain size distribution for the complete particle size range in soils, sedimentation analysis
