Refer to Problem 2.C.1. Results of the sieve analysis for Soils A , B , and C are given below. To obtain a more representative sample for further geotechnical testing, a ternary blend is created by uniformly mixing 8000 kg of each soil. Answer the following questions. a. If a sieve analysis is conducted on the mixture using the same set of sieves as shown above, compute the mass retained (as a percentage) and cumulative percent passing in each sieve. b. What would be the uniformity coefficient ( C u ) and the coefficient of gradation ( C c ) of the mixture?
