 Abstract – In this investigation to evaluation of density, optimum moisture content, particle size as well as mineral consisted at any models, standard compaction, size analysis and X-ray diffraction tests have been employed. This paper is deal with understanding effect of mineral on compaction characteristics of mixed soil models. In this regard the possibility of compaction level analysis in mixed soil models under loose and compacted conditions have been investigated. The result indicated mineralogy characteristics of soil has direct correlation with soil compaction and its optimum moisture content.
