"The purpose of this study is to determine the effects of sand admixtures on the physical properties of soils. Soil may be defined as a heterogenous [sic] collection of rock and mineral fragments whose decomposition and disintegration have been brought about by the action of physical, chemical, and biological forces, working singly or in combination...In the conviction that the study of soils, with respect to highway engineering, is becoming more and more important this study was undertaken in order to learn whether the addition of sand would lead to desirable results, and if not, at least secure some further addition to our present knowledge of soil behavior"--Introduction, page 1-3.
