Soil classification is the grouping of soils with similar engineering properties into a category by using the results of laboratory-based index tests, e.g., group name and symbol (ASTM D , AASHTO M ). It is important to distinguish between a visual description of a soil and its classification .

Many typical soil properties given in this book refer to soil classes, as defined in commonly used soil classification systems. This appendix gives a summary of the more common systems and the definitions of the soil classes within each system. The purpose of a soil classification . For soil resources, experience has shown that a natural system approach to classification, i.e. grouping soils by their intrinsic property (soil morphology), behaviour, or genesis, results in classes that can be interpreted for many diverse ing concepts of pedogenesis, and differences in the significance of morphological features to various land uses can affect the classification.
