Abstract

Results of a traditional sedimentation technique for grain-size analysis (the sieve-pipette method) were compared with those of a laser diffraction grain-size analyser, the Coulter LS-100. Milled quartz samples and silty soil samples were used to investigate the effect of particle shape. The results suggest that the calibration relationships are quite robust as long as the clay mineralogy of the samples is similar
