    Abstract

    These methods cover procedures for identifying soils for engineering purposes in the field and in the laboratory by visual and manual techniques, by the following four methods: Sections Method A.—Gravel component of composite soils............. 5 to 7 Method B.—Sand and silt components of granular composite soils with less than 5 per cent silt.......................... 8 to 10 Method C.—Sand and silt components of composite granular soils with more than 5 per cent silt......................... 11 and 12 Method D.—Combined silt-clay components of composite claysoils and composite organic soils........................ 13 to 15
