Significance of the File

contains a list of soil types together with the associated soil parameters; especially it can be used to define a sediment classification, e.g. the Udden-Wentworth-Scale.

File-Contents (in Catchwords)

  1. class name (e.g. fine sand) of the soil to which a number of physically meaningful soil parameters is attached; please observe that
    • the class name must be unique.
  2. material identification number for the soil type; please pay attention that
    • this number must be unique, similar to the class name above.
  3. code of a physical parameter associated with the soil type as well as its value; please consider the following:
  • for each soil type specified an arbitrary number of physical parameters can be chosen to describe soil qualities;
  • within one type of soil each parameter may not occur more than once;
  • the number of parameters associated with a soil type can vary form soil type to soil type;
  • if this file is used to describe a sediment classification, grain size (code = 626) as well as grain density (code = 1136) must be prescribed.

Notice: valid code numbers for the physical parameters can be found in the configuration file $PROGHOME/cfg/phydef.cfg.de.dat.

An arbitrary number of soil types can be difined within a single file.

Notice: dictionary-file soil_untrim_dico.dat, normally present in directory $PROGHOME/dic/, will be automatically read by the application program in addition to the user-specified input file.
