phase.plot(Ws, Ww, Vs, Vw, Va, W.unit, V.unit, mass = FALSE)
phase.params(Ws, Ww, Vs, Vw, Va)
waterContent(M1, M2, Mc)
relDensity(e, emax, emin)

Arguments

Ws

Weight of solids

Ww

Weight of water

Vs

Volume of solids

Vw

Volume of water

Va

Volume of air

W.unit

Measurement unit of weights

V.unit

Measurement unit of volume

mass

logical variable: TRUE for masses or FALSE for weights (default)

M1

Mass (or weight) of can and wet soil, before drying in oven

M2

Mass (or weight) of can and dry soil, after drying in oven

Mc

Mass (or weight) of can

e

Void ratio

emax

Maximum void ratio

emin

Minimum void ratio

Value

Note

The phase diagram in phase.plot is currently not to scale; this may be edited in the future to allow this functionality.

##  Example of phase diagram plot:
phase.plot(Ws = 75.8, Ww = 15.6, Vs = 0.45, Vw = 0.25,
           Va = 0.1, W.unit = "lb", V.unit = "ft^3", mass = FALSE)

##  Example of index parameters function:
phase.params(Ws = 75.8, Ww = 15.6, Vs = 0.45, Vw = 0.25, Va = 0.1)

##  Example of water content function:
waterContent(M1 = 20.68, M2 = 18.14, Mc = 8.20)

##  Example of relative density function:
relDensity(e = 0.3, emax = 0.92, emin = 0.35)
