A soil's ability to resist structural deterioration is
one of its most important physical properties. An
aggregate, a unit of soil structure, is a cluster or
coherent association of primary particles (sand, silt,
or clay) that has been cemented or bound together
by organic or inorganic constituents. A quantitative
measure of an aggregate's resistance to some
applied disruptive force is its aggregate stability.
Stability is usually measured by sieving aggregates
in water, and is reported as the percent by weight of
aggregates that remain clustered after sieving.
