54 SOIL When these materials will be used in, or influence, design and construction, they should be described according to the criteria for logs of test pits and auger holes and the classification symbol and typical name placed in quotation marks similar to the previous discussion on secondary identification method for materials other than natural soils. " Approximately 80 percent fines with low plasticity, slow dilatancy, low dry strength, and low toughness; approximately 20 percent fine to medium sand; wet, dark brown, organic odor, weak reaction with HCl; roots present throughout.

Gravel-size particles fracture with considerable hammer blow, some gravel-size particles crumble with hammer blow. Hard means particles do not fracture or crumble when struck with a hammer. Remember that the larger the particle, the harder the blow required to fracture it. A good practice is to describe the particle size and the method that was used to determine the hardness. Additional Descriptive Information Additional descriptive information may include unusual conditions, geological interpretation or other classification methods, such as: Presence of roots or root holes or other organic material or debris; Degree of difficulty in drilling or augering hole or excavating a pit; or Raveling or caving of the trench, hole, pit, or exposure; or Presence of mica or other predominant minerals.

Blocks are angular to subangular clasts > 64 millimeters (mm); bombs are rounded to subrounded clasts > 64 mm. Determine percent of each size present (ash, lapilli, blocks, and bombs) and list in decreasing order after rock name. Preceed rock name with the term "welded" for pyroclastic rocks which retained enough heat to fuse after deposition. Rock names for such deposits are usually selected from the lower right portion of the classification diagram above. (Modified from Fisher, 1966 [2] and Williams and McBirney, 1979 [3]).
