AbstractThe effect of the grain size distribution of certain fine and medium sands on their maximum, standard compaction, and minimum densities is analysed. The regression equations relating the grading of the sand to these respective densities are given and discussed. Although absolute limiting density tests have not been evolved, some important factors influencing these test techniques have been illustrated. Due to the arbitrary nature of the limiting density tests used in present investigations, any direct comparison between the physical properties of sands from various separate investigations is erroneous when only relative density data are reported.
