Sand Sieve Analysis
1. With this routine you can get the sand sieve analysis. Routine displays the computation of the particle-size distribution in different windows. Moreover, you can get the main parameters of statistics analysis: percentiles, mean, standard deviation, kurtosis, etc.
2. Inputs:
Instructions are on the code.
3. Outputs
Graphs of:
Frecuency Curve.
Cumulative Arithmetic Curve.
Cumulative Probability
Arithmetic Curve.
Cumulative Probability
Semi-Log Curve.
Cumulative Probability
Logarithmic Curve.
D5, D10, D16, D25, D30, D50,
D60, D75, D84, D95.
Mean grain size.
Standard Deviation.
Coefficient of curvature.
Coefficient of uniformity.
Qualitative sediment
distribution ranges for
standard deviation, skewness
and kurtosis.
