Proper water content, evenly distributed, is critical for proper compaction. Cohesive soils usually require a force such as impact or pressure. Silt has a noticeably lower cohesion than clay. However, silt is still heavily reliant on water content. [See Figure 4] Granular soils Granular soils range in particle size from .003" to .08" (sand) and

plastic (no clay) because they lack fine material by definition. Plasticity is particularly important for base and surface aggregates as a high clay content can lead to problems with moisture retention and deformation. A PI of 0 is "nonplastic", meaning levels of clay in the aggregate are insignificant. DSA has a PI range of 04.

Table 3–1 shows some of the commonly used grade scales for comparison. Note that the range in size for a particular class of particle may differ from one classifiion system to another.
