Grain size distribution plays a vital role for characterization of soil. Particle size distribution (PSD) in a soil mass is a character which gives a major idea about bearing capacity of soils and bearing capacity of the soil is a key parameter to design foundation of any civil engineering structure. Indian Standards has classified the soils as per particle size gradation. As per I S Code range of the particle size varies from boulder to clay. This paper discusses about the results of particle
