Size Configuration (Summary) Sieve Series Size Distribution Measurements


There are three tabs for size data configuration:Sieve Series, Size Distribution and Measurements

These tabs will only be visible if:

  • You have the Size Distribution add on; and
  • You have selected the size distribution dll or group in the Model selection (see Model Selection)


To add a new size distribution, the work flow is as follows:

  1. On the Size Distribution tab:
    • Press the "Add Distribution" button (if not renaming the default "Std" distribution).
    • Rename the Distribution and set the relevant parameters (Bottom size, Interpolation Method, Species).
  2. On the Sieve Series tab:
    • Select the new Distribution from the list.
    • Define the sizes for the new size distribution using one of the predefined methods or manually.
  3. On the Measurements tab:
    • Select the new Distribution from the list.
    • Define the desired measurements for the new size distribution.
