Abstract. Laser diffraction and pipette methods were carried out for comparative grain-size analysis of soil samples representing a similar texture classification sampled. A detail physical-chemical analysis of soils, which involves use of XRF, XRD and SEM analysis were done. XRF and XRD analysis were done on the fractions separated by pipette method. On the obtained fraction particle size distribution and SEM analysis were done. The obtained results of these different methods are in good agreement and for detailed soil analysis comparison of both methods are recommended.

Keywords. Soil particle size distribution; Laser diffraction; Pipette methods; Micro-structural analysis of soils
