Hi all, I have been working in geotech for ~1 year (not including internships) and have found myself working in an office where I am the engineer and lab tech. I know how to run the tests thanks to my schooling and internship, but don't have much experience with what is a "normal" result, particularly with grain size analysis. I have some samples that I am running and I have curves with near horizontal segments in the sieve/hydrometer report. These same curves have coefficient of uniformity values >10.
Is this a reasonable value? I have looked and looked but can not find a typical range of Cu values to compare against. Thank you!
