sieve analysis

[′siv ə‚nal·ə·səs]
(engineering)
The size distribution of solid particles on a series of standard sieves of decreasing size, expressed as a weight percent. Also known as sieve classification; sieving.

sieve analysis, screen analysis

A determination of the proportions of particles lying within certain size ranges in a granular material by separation on sieves of different-size openings.
