The sand equivalent test quantifies the relative abundance of sand versus clay in soil. The test is used to qualify aggregates for applications where sand is desirable but fines and dust are not. A higher sand equivalent value indicates that there is less clay‐like material in a sample. Smartapp sand equivalency test app is built to follow the standard test methodology and reporting of test results. Flexibility is provided to specify permissible limits (to suit standards applicable) against which test results can be compared with.
