Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

The results reported in this study indicate that careful control of the applied torque settings and instrumental modification can play an important part in the determination of particle size distributions of soils using the dry sieving technique. Determinations were highly repeatable and increased the sensitivity of the method for comparative soil analyses used to test for similarity. Experimental results also suggested that equal weights of soils should be compared in the determinations of both control and questioned samples.
