Sieve Analysis. Gradation of aggregates is determined from sieve analysis, in which a representative sample of aggregate is passed through a series of sieves and the weight retained in each sieve – expressed as a percentage of the sample weight – is compared with the grading limits specified.
Sieve analysis. Objective: To determine the particle size distribution of an aggregate, and to draw the grading chart. Introduction: The particle size distribution of an aggregate is determined by the mechanical analysis, which is usually made by shaking the material through series of sieves.
A sieve analysis (or gradation test) is a practice or procedure used (commonly used in civil engineering) to assess the particle size distribution (also called gradation) of a granular material by allowing the material to pass through a series of sieves of progressively smaller mesh size and weighing the amount of material that is stopped …
