## How do you represent the particle size distribution graphically?

Particle size distribution can be represented either in tabular or in graphical form. The table below shows this for the grinding balls. The quantity in each fraction is represented by the letter p, index 0 means “number-based”, index 3 means “mass- or volume-based”.

### What is the particle size distribution curve in soil analysis?

Particle Size Distribution Curve. Thus ‘cumulative percentage finer than’ or ‘cumulative percentage passing through’ is plotted on Y-axis in natural scale and the corresponding sieve sizes are plotted on X-axis in logarithmic scale. The resulting graph is known as particle size distribution curve.

#### What does D50 mean?

D50 is the corresponding particle size when the cumulative percentage reaches 50%. D50 is also called as the median particle diameter or median particle size. For example, for a powder sample with D50 = 5μm, it means 50% of particles are larger than 5μm and 50% particles are smaller than 5μm.

What is CU and CC in sieve analysis?

Uniformity Coefficient (Cu) which is a measure of the uniformity of grain size in the soil and is defined as the ratio of the 60% finer size (D60) to D10. Coefficient of Cuvature (Cc) is a value that can be used to identify a poorly graded soil.

What is D60 and D10?

D10 is called as effective particle size. This means that 10% percent of the particles are finer and 90% of the particles are coarser than D10. This is the size at 10% finer by weight. Similarly, D60 is the particle size at which 60% of the particles are finer and 40% of the particles are coarser than D60 size.

## What is D90 value?

Also known as the median diameter. D90: The portion of particles with diameters below this value is 90%.

### What is the meaning of D 60 and D 30?

D60 – 60 % of the soil particles are finer than this size. D30 – 30% of the particles are finer than this size. D10 – 10% of the particles are finer than this size. For example, if you have 100 particles of diameter ranging from 1 mm to 100 mm, D60 is 61 mm (below which 60% of particles are there).
