The D10 size, sometimes called the effective grain size, is the grain diameter for which 10% of the sample (by weight) is finer.Sieve Analysis of Fine and Coarse Aggregates,1.3 Use Part II to determine a weight-based, sieve analysis for an aggregate sample requiring a washed sieve analysis. 1.4 Use Part III to determine a volume-based, sieve analysis for an aggregate sample. Perform a volumetric sieve analysis when aggregates with differences in bulk specific gravity greater than 0.3 are blended.
