This method sets out recommended procedures for mixing, compacting, conditioning and trimming asphalt to provide homogeneous specimens suitable for wheel track testing, beam flexure testing, resilient modulus testing and other asphalt characterisation tests. The procedures are advisory rather than mandatory and reference should be made to the relevant test method for required standards of specimen conformance.
