Sand Sieve Analysis
1. With this routine you can get the sand sieve analysis. Routine displays the computation of the particle-size distribution in different windows. Moreover, you can get the main parameters of statistics analysis: percentiles, mean, standard deviation, kurtosis, etc.
Instructions are on the code.

Has anyone tried this with pebble count data, not mass via sieves?
I tried running this script but it gives me error at line 66 @Gar
error in Sandy1_75 (line 66)
@Duncan Wright. Hi, I have fixed this bug. Please download Sandy_1_75. Thank you
Are any other stats packages required? I get the error:
Undefined function or variable 'idp'.
Error in Sandy (line 153)
wer = find(idp==2);
Error in run (line 96)
evalin('caller', [script ';']);
After running in data folder..
Is there any way to avoid the graphs being directly exported as metafile images? I would like to get them in matlab.
@Chaudhry: the example files you can find them in GitHub on the Sandy_paper repository.
Can you please send an example on which i will run this? it will be great help. Thanks
It is a wonderfull tool.
am notable to download the file
Can the author supply a little more information on the calculations? I have compared results with another 'method of moment' software and found some differences in the results. Thanks.
Hello Gabriel! I have a question, it's posible to use your rutine with images rgb? or gray images?
how open the file?, is .m file and how run the software?
For me it's ok, I think that if we wanted to improve the script, we could do it. It's true this script need some changes, but C'mon we can't expect that every script that we find, it solves exactly our problems.
i want to do more no of samples ,i think it is very useful to me
cant download.. can anyone help..plz!
I AGREE. Download happens but NO .exe file
Canot down load the Exe file
for academic purpose
I find it works well by just commenting out the line 22.
I think this program is very nice. However, it doest'w work in Matlab7 SP2. Could you fix this problem? Thanks.
If using Mac OS X you'll need to modify directory paths specified in the m-files - the m file code specifies directory separators as backward slashes (\) and Mac OS X uses forward slashes (/). Simply look for the directory specifications and modify.
If you are using the default screen resolution you'll also need to modify lines 22 and 23. Comment out line 22 and for screen resolution of 1280x854 make line 23
vpan = screen(1,4)-120; hpan = screen(1,3)-250;
If you have a 1024 x 768 screen, you must put a comment in the line (22) or delete the line:
screen = screen - 256;
excellent job boss
When multiple samples are analyzed, a C-M diagram is plotted. Fix a bug related to the name function.
Bug related with the names of the main and subfunction was fixed.
The results are exported a txt file.
All the routine was renewed, the phi scales was added to the plots, new parameters can be computed. The routine has the capability to one multiple samples.
Now, the user only has to do, it's to create a variable with the name "Granulometria" and inside this variable. I fixed an enormous bugs.
Now,the routine enables to the user gives whatever value of density.
I added a pie plot and reviewed some parameters.
