Abstract:
Conditions at Reservoir No. 22 Dam created severe fluctuations of free moisture in sand and pea gravel. Use of a moisture meter as a basis for ad-justments in water is described. Charts show the effectiveness of the device, in conjunction with other control measures, as an aid to producing quality concrete.
