    Abstract

    Rapid methods of determining the approximate moisture content of soils and granular materials are used extensively in field control of embankment and base course construction. The use of a rapid method is necessary in order that sufficient tests can be performed for adequate quality control and to avoid delay in construction pending the testing.
