Limestone, chalk, dolomite, gyp- sum, anhydrite, and others belong to this category.

Limestone is formed mostly of calcium carbonate that originates from calcite deposited either by organismsor by an inorganic process. Dolomite is calcium magnesiumcarbonateIcaMg coj 2]. It is fbrmed either by the chemical deposition of mixed carbonatesor by the reaction of magnesiumin water with limestone. Gypsum and anhydrite result from the precipi- tation of soluble CaSoa becauseof evaporation of ocean water.

They belong to a class of rocks generally referred to as evaporircs. Rock salt Nacl is another ex- ample of an evaporite that originatesfrom the salt depositsof seawater. Sedimentaryrock may undergo weathering to form sedimentsor may be sub- jected to the processof metamrtrphismto become metamorphic rock. Metamorphic Rock Metamorphi.

Gran- ite, diorite, and gabbro become gneissesby high-grademetamorphism. Shalesand mudstones are transformed into slatesand phyllites by low-grade metamorphism.

Schists are a type of metamorphic rock with well-foliated texture and visible flakes of platy and micaceousminerals. Marble is formed from calcite and dolomite by recrystallization. The mineral grainsin marble are larger than thosepresentin the original rock.

Quartzite is a meta- morphic rock formed from quartz-rich sandstones. Silica enters into the void spaces between the quartz and sand grains and acts as a cementing agent. Quartzite is one of the hardestrocks. Under extreme heat and pressure,metamorphic rocks may melt to form magma, and the cycle is repcated. To describesoils by their particle size, sevcral organizations have developcd particle-size classifications.

This systemis important in the history of the developmentof the size limits of particles present in soils; howcver,the Unified Soil ClassificationSys- tem is now almost universallyacceptecland has been adopted by the American So- ciety for Testing and Materials ASTM.

This is also called a gibbsitcsheat- Figure 2. T h i s m c a n st h a t t h e t o p o x y g e na t o m of each tetrahedral unit has a negativechzrrgcof one to be counterbalanced. Of the three importzrntclay mincrals, kaolinita consistsof repeating layers of elemental silica-gibbsitcshectsin a 1: I lattice as shown in Figures2.

Each layer is about7. Thc lerycrsarc held togerherby hydrogen bonding. Kaolin- ite occursas platele-ts, each with a lateral dimension of to 20,A and a thick- nessof to A. The surface area per unit mass is defined as sp'ecificsur. The illite layersare bonded by potassiumions. The negativechargeto balancethe potas- sium ions comesfrom the substitutionof aluminum for ro-" rili. I form is known as isrtmorphous substitLrlion.

Montnnrillonite has a structure. See Figures2. Particlesof montmorillonite have lateral dimensionsof ro A and thicknessesof 10 to 50 A. The s eci6; surfaceis about m2is. Besideskaolinite, illite, and montmorillonite, other common clay mineralsgen- erally found are chlorite, halloysite,vermiculite, and attapulqite.

This is the re- sult both of isomorphoussubstitution and of a brcak in continuity of the structure at its edges. Larger negativc chargcs are derived from larger specificsurfaces. Some positivelycharged sitesalso occur at the edgesof the particles. A list of the recipro- cal of the averagesurfacedensitiesof the negativechargeson the surfaceso[ some clav minerals follows Yong and Warkentin, When water is added to clay, these cations and a few anions float around the clay particles.

This configuration is referred to as a diffuse double layer Figure 2. The cation concentration decreaseswith the distance from the surface of the particle Figure 2.

Water molecules are polar. Hydrogen atoms are not axisymmetric around an oxygen atom; instead,they occur at a bonded angle of ' Figure 2. As a result, a water molecule has a positive charge at one side and a negative charge at the other side.

It is known as a dipole. Dipolar water is attracted both by the negatively charged surface of the clay particles and by the cations in the double layer. The cations, in turn, are attracted to the soil particles. Some partially hydrated cations in the pore water are also attractcd to the surfaceofclay particles. These cations attract dipolar water molecules.

All thesepossiblemechanicsof attraction of water to clay are shown in Figure 2. Thc lorce of attraction between water and clay decreaseswith dis- tancc from thc surfetceof thc particles. All the watcr held to clay particles by fbrce of irttraction is known as double-luyer woter. The innermost layei of double-layer water' which is hcld vcry strongly by clay,is known as aclsorbecl water.

This water is more viscousthan free water is. Figure 2. It needsto be wcll recognizedthat the presenceof clay minerals in a soil aggre- gate has a great influenceon the engineeringproperties of the soil as a whole.

When moisture is present,thc enginecringbehaviclrof a soil will changegreatly as the per- centageof clay mineral content increases. The specific gravity of soil solids is often needed for various calcu- lations in soil mechanics. It can be determined accuratelyin the laboratory.

Most of the valuesfall within a range of 2. The specificgravity of solids of light-colored sand, which is mostly made of quartz, may be estimated to be about 2. Sieve Analysis Sieve analysisconsistsof shaking the soir sampre through a set of sievesthat have progressivelysmaller openings. The sicvesused for soir analysisare generally mm g in. To conduct a sieve anarysis,one must lirst ovJn-dry t'he soil oni th"n break all lumps into small particles. The soil is then shaken through a stack of sieveswith openings of decreasingsize from top to bottom a pan is pliced below the stack.

The smallest-sizesieve that should be used for this type of test is the U. After the soil is shaken,the massof soir retained on each sieveis determined.

In rhis case,rhe soil may bJmixed with water to-;l; a slurry and then washed through the sieves'Portions retained on each sieveare collectedseparately and oven-dried before the massretained on each sieveis measured.

When a soil specimen is dispersed in water, the particles settle at different ve- locities, depending on their shape,size,and weight, and the viscosity of the water.

When a hydrometer is placed in the soil suspensionat a time t, measuredfrom the start of sedimentationit measuresthe specificgravity in the vicinity of its bulb at a depth L Figure 2. The specificgravity is a function of the amount of soil par- ticles present per unit volume of suspensionat that depth.

Also, at a time r, the soil particlesin suspensionat a depth L will have a diameter smaller than D as calculated in Eq. The larger particles would have settred beyond the zone of measure- ment. Hydrometers are designedto give the amount of soil, in grams, that is still in suspension.

They are calibrated for soils that have a specificgravity, G. By knowing the amount of soil in suspension. Note that L is the depth mea- sured from the surface of the water to the center of gravity of the hydrometer bulb at which the density of the suspensionis measured.

Hence, for any reading R, r r 0. I 20 In many instances,the results of sieve analysisand hydrometer analysis for finer fractions for a given soil are combined on one graph, iuch as the one shown in Figure 2. When these resultsare combined, a discontinuity generally occursin the range where they overlap. This discontinuity occurs UecausJsoil particles are generally irregular in shape.

The particle shape can generally be divided into three major categories: Bulky 2. Flaky 3. Needle shaped BuLky particles are mostly formed by mechanical weathering of rock and min- erals.

Thesc particles are predominantly clay minerals. Needle-shapedparticles are much less common than thc other two oarticle types. Examples of soils containing needle-shapedparticlesarc some coral deposits and attapulgite clays.

Some important points include the following: Rocks can be classifiedinto three basic categories: Soils are formed by chemical and mechanicalweathering of rocks. Based on the size of the soil particles,soil can be classifiedas gravel,sand, silt, or clay. Clays are mostly flake-shapedmicroscopicand submicroscopicparticles of mica, clay minerals,and other minerals. Clay minerals are complex aluminum silicatesthat develop plasticity when mixed with a limited amount of water.
