Meho Saša Kovačević, Danijela Jurić-Kaćunić, Lovorka Librić, Gordana Ivoš

Abstract

This paper presents novelties in the identification and description of soil according to European standard EN ISO 14688-1:2018, as well as changes in the principles of soil classification according to European standard EN ISO 14688-2:2018. A new version of the European Soil Classification System (ESCS) for engineering purposes is developed. A detailed comparison with the Unified Soil Classification System (USCS) is performed according to soil group symbols, soil group names, and soil classification procedures. A new version of the KLASIF computer software is also developed. The program provides IT support for implementing both USCS and ESCS classifications, and facilitates their parallel use.

Keywords
soil classification, computer software, standard, particle size distribution, plasticity
