The method is more satisfactory than the casagrande method as it is
essentially a static test depending on the soil shear strength. The test is
based on the relationship between moisture content and the penetration of a
cone into the soil sample under controlled condition. This value is obtained
from the penetration capacity of the standard cone allowed to free fall into
the sample for a period of 5 seconds.

Motorized Sieve Shaker :
To make the process of Sieving Easier and quicker, electrically operated
mechanical Sieve Shakers are offered for dry sieving. The mechanical Sieve
Shakers effect a more elaborate and standardized Sieving action to produce
accurate results and eliminate personal errors involved in manual Sieving.
On the basis of experience gained in the manufacture of these Sieve Shakers
for more than 35 Years considerable improvement has been made in design &
performance of these units. These Sieve Shakers are popularly used not only
in soil laboratories but also in number of industries where sieving is
required, such as for ores, refractory materials, minor aggregates,
pigments, powdered coal, soap, cement, roofing material, plastic Moulding
powders & pharmaceuticals. A Digital timer adjustable from 0-99 minutes
is incorporated as an integral part of equipment.
The Sieve Shaker can carry upto 8 Sieves. It is driven by a 1/4 H.P. Motor
The Sieve table is inclined from the vertical axis & the direction of
inclination changes progressively in the clockwise direction. In the
addition to the gyratory motion of the table, there is tapping motion as
well. Operating on 220 V single phase AC.

Plummet Balance, IS: 2720 (P - iv)
Elegance combined with simplicity of operation. Sinking of Plummet to right
depth is all that is required before taking a reading.
Grain size distribution curve for the entire sub-sieve range of particle
size is possible, which is not so with pipette method, where only specific
sizes of particles can be determined. Eliminates computations involved in
Hydrometer method. %age of soil in suspension can be directly read. Grain
size distribution curve can be directly plotted as experiment progresses.
The Plummet Balance consists of a vertical rod mounted on a heavy base with
leveling screws. A light weight pointer with pointed steel pivots, turning a
jeweled bearings moves over a scale graduated in %age units 0-100 in 2%
divisions. The pointer is provided with a hook for hanging plummet. The
Balance moves up and down over the vertical rod with the help of rack and
pinion arrangement. A chart showing the relationship between K and temp. of
suspension of soils of varying specific gravity from 2.4 to 2.8 to help
solve stroke's equation is provided. Complete with one perspex plummet, one
measuring jar, one rider weight for adjusting the pointer to 100%

Relative Density apparatus, IS: 2720 (P-xiv), IS:10837,
ASTM D 4253-4254)
Apparatus determines the relative density of cohesionless, free-draining
soils and provides well-defined results on soils that do not respond well to
conventional moisture-density impact compaction testing. Soils for which
this method is appropriate may contain up to 12 percent of soil particles
passing a No. 200 (75?m) sieve, depending on the distribution of particle
sizes, which causes them to have free-draining characteristics. Relative
density of cohesion less soils uses vibratory compaction to obtain maximum
density and pouring to obtain minimum density.
