Sand-silt mixtures show different behavior with different fines content. The transitional fines content (TFC) is a key parameter which can indicate if the soil behaves as a sand-dominated or as a fines-dominated material. The determination of the TFC for a sand-silt mixture and the possible ways of obtaining the TFC from index data and the triaxial test results are discussed in this study.
