The AASHTO Soil Classification System was developed by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials, and is used as a guide for the classification of soils and soil-aggregate mixtures for highway construction purposes The AASHTO classification in present use is given below table. According to this system, the soil is classified into seven major groups: A-1 through A-7 . Soils classified under groups A-1, A-2, and A-3 are granular materials, of which 35% or less of the particles pass through the No. 200 sieve Group Classification; A-1 A-3. A-2 A-4: A-5.

American Association of State Highway and Transport Officials (AASHTO) soil classification system is based on both the particle size and the plasticity characteristics. According to this system, soils are classified into eight groups A-1 to A-8, the last being peat or muck For coarse, clean soils (wPI = 0), it was decided to correlate the CBR value with the Diameter 60 (D60) from the grain size distribution curves. Figure 2 shows the data obtained from Tables 1 and 4 for non-plastic soils. Three additional data points were used based on the AASHTO classification system corresponding to A-1-a, A-1-b, and A-3 soils. These data points wer AASHTO soil classification in the late 1920s for road construction. The current version, which was revised in 1945, is used for extended applications in road bases. AASHTO method uses Atterberg limits (LL and PL) and information on grain size distribution curve. The procedure uses an elimination process of column in Table 5.1

Some of the groups are in turn divided into subgroups, such as A-1-a and A-1-b Base on AASHTO soil classification, Loc.1 is A-4(0)(silty soil), Loc.2 is A- 6(3) (clayey soil), Loc.3 is A-1-b(3) (gravel and sand), Loc.4 is A-7(20) (Clayey soil), Loc.5 is A-7(11) (Clayey soil), Loc.6 is A-7(8) (Clayey soil) and Loc.7 is A-7(6) (Claye 4-3 Soil classification chart..... 4-14 4-4 Minimum sample size..... 4-19 4-5 Classification of inorganic fine-grained soil.. 4-21 . 4-6 Classification of organic fine-grained soil.. 4-21 4-7 Field identification by visual-manual methods.. 4-2 Classification of Soil 1- American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) The AASHTO classification in present use is given in Table 5.1. According to this system, soil is classified into seven major groups: A-1 through A-7. Soils classified under groups A-1, A-2, and A-3 are granular materials of which (≤35%) 35% or less of the particles pass through the No. 200.
proceeding across AASHTO table from left to right with LL=34.1<40 and PI=17.6>11 the first soil which satisfies these criteria is an A-2-6 soil. 4. next compute the GI, because the soil is A-2-6, then GI=0.01(F-15)(PI-10)=0.01(21.6-15)(17.6-10)=0.52 rounding to the nearest whole number, obtain GI=1 Therefore the final classification of soil is A-2-6(1) Classifying Soil B 1. The PI is, PI= 53.5. The AASHTO Soil Classification system classifies soils into eight major groups based on their grain size distribution and Atterberg limits. These groups are designated A-1 through A-8. Soils that fall within the lower numbered groups are granular (sands and gravels), contain less than 35 percent fines, and ten Table Label: Horizon AASHTO Column Physical Name: aashtocl Column Label: AASHTO A rating based on a system that classifies soils according to those properties that affect roadway construction and maintenance.

Purpose Classifying soils into groups with similar behavior, in terms of simple indices, can provide geotechnical engineers a general guidance about engineering properties of the soils through the accumulated experience. Simple indices. The coarse-grained soil classification as outlined in Table 4-2 does not take into account the presence of cobbles and boulders within the soil mass. When cobbles and/ or boulders are detected, either visually within a test pit or as indicated by drilling action/core recovery, they should be reported on the field logs after the main soil description. The descriptor to be used should be as.
The AASHTO System of Soil Classification was developed by the U.S Bureau of Public Roads in 1920 for classification of soils for highway subgrade use. It was further revised by AASHTO in 1945. In this system, the soil is classified depending upon the plasticity characteristics and the particle size of the soil. This system classifies the soil into seven major categories Soil Classification- Purpose Classifying soils into groups with similar behavior, in terms of ( From Santamarina et al., 2001, Similar to Table 2.7 of your text book) Example #1 Passing No.4 sieve = 70% LL= 33 PL= 13 PI=LL-PL=33-13=20 Above A-Line SC Passing No.200 sieve = 30% .

Classification of materials in the various groups applies only to the fraction passing the 75 mm sieve. The proportions of boulder‐ and cobble‐sized particles should be recorded separately and any specification regarding the use or A‐1, A‐2 or A‐3 materials in construction should state whether boulders are.
While the soil classification system has evolved over many years, existing soil classifications and descriptions recorded remain valid. Therefore, these earlier logs and past descriptions must not be changed to conform to current standards. 3. Current Classification System. The Unified Soil Classification System has been through several transitions since it was developed. The current version. Image: AASHTO Soil Classification Chart - Please click to enlarge. Unified Soil Classification System (USCS) The Unified Soil Classification System was developed by Cassagrande in 1942, and it divides soils into different groups like well graded soils, poorly graded soils, organic soils, and many other types. It is used by geotechnical.
The criteria used for classification in AASHTO soil classification are shown in Table 6.6. A soil is classified into a particular group based on %fines, plasticity index, and group index of the soil. For A-1-a group, the percentages of soil passing through the 2-mm and 425-µm sieves are the additional criteria. For classifying into A-1-b and A-3 groups, the percentage passing through the 425.
