Soil Mechanics Description and Classification

The rock mass is generally so large and so hard that relatively great effort e g blasting or heavy crushing forces is required to break it down into smaller particles Soil is defined as a conglomeration consisting of a wide range of relatively smaller particles derived from a parent rock through mechanical weathering processes that include air and or water abrasion freeze
