For clarity, this Guide makes a conscious effort to consistently refer to this material as HMA.

  • Basis of Soil Classification

    Sand, which is influenced more by particle size, is subdivided into four categories – fine, medium, coarse, and very coarse. A new soil category, Mo, has been introduced that has a particle size of 0.02-0.1 mm and is finer than sand and coarser than silt. Silt and clay have the respective particle size range of 0.002-0.02 mm and 0.0002-0.002 mm.
