Detailed test procedures are given for the use of the Moisture
Condition Apparatus (MCA) to determine soil acceptability
for earthworks at the ground investigation and
earthworking stages of a project. Guidance is given on the
particle sizes of soils which can be tested using the MCA,
on the effect of large particles on the application of the
MCA, on appropriate limits of acceptability, on Moisture
Condition Value (MCV) precision test data, and the certification
of MCA machines and operators
