Closure to "Revised Soil Classification System for Coarse-Fine Mixtures" by Junghee Park and J. Carlos Santamarina

Keywords

Soil classification, Coarse-Fine mixtures

Abstract

We are grateful for the insightful contributions by the discussers. This closure addresses their observations, with emphasis on the transition from coarse-controlled to fines-controlled behavior, the critical fines fraction in view of seepage-induced internal instability, and related observations relevant to the revised soil classification system (RSCS).
