Interpretation of Sieve Analyses of Agricultural Limestones and Suggested Particle Size Specifications1

Synopsis

Synopsis

Considerable variation in fineness occurs among agricultural limestones from different geographical regions but most are of the ground and meal grades. Log normal plots of sieve opening diameters against cumulative percents passing, and the quartiles, median, and sorting coefficient are useful in studying particle size distributions. Specifications requiring that 50% shall pass a selected median sieve, and that 9570 pass a coarser sieve, are suggested.
