Most noteworthy property of cohesionless soil (granular soil) is relative density where with respect to durable soil is consistency. Relative density is the list property of a cohesionless soil. The designing properties of a mass of cohesionless soil depend to a substantial degree on its relative density (Dr). Relative density is a term for the most part used to depict the level of compaction of coarse-grained soils. From the various reviewed investigations, it is learnt that the connection of relative density of granular soils have not been endeavored in the research facility with the index property like grain size. In this way, a relationship can be built up in the research facility with emax, emin and mean grain estimate. Correspondingly the relative density at specific compactive effort can be associated with mean grain size of the granular soils.
