The Shiozawa and Campbell Gaussian bimodal model describes the particle size distribution (PSD) in soils as a weighted sum of two fractions: the primary minerals (sand and silt) and the secondary minerals (clay) fraction, each described by a Gaussian function. This model was developed and tested using traditional sedimentation techniques analysis for PSD such as sieving and hydrometer. Because of the lack of particle size distribution data in the clay range, Shiozawa and Campbell set the mean… CONTINUE READING
