Microscopic analysis of soils has attracted wide attention, but at present, the analysis of particle shape of soft clay is still scarce. In this paper, the fractal dimension of particle aspect ratio, roundness and roughness is studied by selecting typical soil samples in Tianjin Port area. The main conclusions are as follows: (1) The average aspect ratio of clay, silty clay and silt is 1.56, 1.58 and 1.65, respectively, which shows that the smaller the soil particles are, the smaller the aspect ratio of the whole soil sample is; (2) The average roundness of clay, silty clay and silt are 0.91, 0.89 and 0.88, respectively, which indicates that the smaller the soil particles are, the closer the roundness of the whole soil sample is to 1, the closer the soil particles are to the circle. (3) The smaller the soil particles are, the smoother the surface of the particles is, and the smaller the soil particles are, the more obvious the correlation is.
