English term or phrase: grade
Merci chers collègues,

Je me demande si «grade» fait référence à la classe du matériel ou à sa position par rapport au niveau du sol.
Voici la phrase. Votre soutien est grandement apprécié.
Merci

English translation:Soil grading
Explanation:
Hope this works for you, Virgule. My French is rusty at best. There are a number of means of grading soil, or even referring to it. One example, that of technically grading the soil content via mathematic means, follows:

"Graph of grain size (horizontal logarithmic scale) against percentage distribution (vertical arithmetic scale); a point on the curve indicates the percentage by weight of particles smaller in size than the grain size at the given point."

(http://www.xrefer.com/entry/614903)

Specific grades are given in the next example:

"Soil grading can be measured by strainer. Size of the strainer ranges from 0.075 to 80 mm. By measuring soil grading, Grading curve, effective grain size, coefficient of uniformity can be led. Grading curve can be drawn in the graph by this measurement. In this graph, Grain size at 10 percent through is effective grain size. It called D10. And D60 can also be expressed from this graph. Ratio of D60 and D10 means coefficient of uniformity. It called Uc. When Uc indicated over 10, It means well graded. The grain size is widely distributed in other words."

(http://133.82.238.151/mongolia/soil/method.htm)

Another type of grading is that of leveling off to a smooth horizontal or sloping surface, such as for a new home or when planting (grass, trees, etc.)

Hope this was of some help!
