    Abstract

    Minimum test specimen masses are recommended for determining the moisture content of soils. The specimen mass is dependent on the accuracy required, the maximum particle size present in the soil being tested, and the estimated moisture content of the soil. Equations are presented to calculate the minimum specimen mass required and nominal values are shown in a table.
