Particle Size Distribution Calculator To Analyze Particle size

Particle Size Distribution Calculator

Particle Size Distribution Calculator


To use the Particle Size Distribution Calculator:

  1. Enter the Sieve Size (mm) in the “Enter Sieve Size (mm)” input field. This should be the size of the sieve you are using in millimeters.
  2. Enter the Mass Retained (g) in the “Enter Mass Retained (g)” input field. This should be the mass of particles retained on the sieve in grams.
  3. Click the “Calculate” button to perform the calculation.
  4. The results will be displayed in the “Results” section below:
    • “Sieve Size (mm)”: This will show the value you entered for sieve size.
    • “Mass Retained (g)”: This will show the value you entered for mass retained.
    • Cumulative Mass Retained Percentage”: This will display the cumulative mass retained percentage calculated based on the values entered.
    • “Finer Percentage”: This will show the finer percentage, which is calculated as 100% minus the cumulative mass retained percentage.
  5. You can use the “Copy to Clipboard” button to copy the results to your clipboard for further use.
  6. If you want to share the results on Twitter, the “Share on Twitter” button will become visible. Click it to share the results on your Twitter account.

These steps allow you to input sieve size and mass retained values, calculate particle size distribution, and then copy or share the results as needed.

I'm Steve Axton, a dedicated Asphalt Construction Manager with over 25 years of experience paving the future of infrastructure. My journey with asphalt began by studying civil engineering and learning about core pavement materials like aggregate, binder and additives that compose this durable and versatile substance. I gained hands-on experience with production processes including refining, mixing and transporting during my internships, which opened my eyes to real-world uses on roads, driveways and parking lots. Over the past decades, I have deepened my expertise in asphalt properties like viscosity, permeability and testing procedures like Marshall stability and abrasion. My time with respected construction companies has honed my skills in paving techniques like milling, compaction and curing as well as maintenance activities like crack filling, resurfacing and recycling methods. I'm grateful for the knowledge I've gained about standards from Superpave to sustainability best practices that balance longevity, cost and environmental friendliness. It's been an incredibly rewarding career working with this complex material to build the infrastructure future.
