Congratulations to #LSAMP Intern and #CivilEngineering major Paolo, for a great presentation on calculating surface roughness, for use in determining building specifications during the 2018 Undergraduate Research Conference... #STEM#diversity#Engineering
Single Grained Soil Structure
Single grained structures are present in cohesion less soils like gravel and sand. The grains of cohesion less soils have less surface force and more gravitational force. So, when we pour some amount of sand or gravel on the ground, the grains will settle using gravitational force rather than surface force.
After attaining the final position, each grain is in contact with the surrounding grains and formed structure is called as single grained structure.
