Sampling of Bituminous Slurry
This protocol specifies the method for sampling bituminous slurry mixture from the slurry paving unit at the paving site.
Determination of Abrasion Loss of Bituminous Slurry (Wet Track Abrasion Test)
This test method sets out the procedure to evaluate the wearing resistance of bituminous slurry surfacing materials under wet abrasion conditions.
Determination of Excess Binder in Bituminous Slurry (Loaded Wheel Test)
This test method sets out the procedure to evaluate bituminous slurry materials for their propensity for binder flushing after subjecting to loaded wheel tracking cycles.
Determination of Set and Cure for Bituminous Slurry (Cohesion Test)
This test method sets out the method for the determination of the setting and curing characteristics of a bituminous slurry as a function of the cohesive strength developed in the mixture with time.
Determination of Optimum Amount of Added Water for Bituminous Slurry (Consistency Test)
This test method sets out the procedure to determine the consistency of a bituminous slurry that is then used to optimise the amount of water required to form a workable mixture. This test may not be applicable to certain microsurfacing mixtures due…
Characterisation of Flexural Stiffness and Fatigue Performance of Bituminous Mixes
The test method specifies procedures for the characterisation of the stiffness and fatigue behaviour of bituminous mixtures using a four-point bending test configuration.
Ball Penetration Test
This test method describes the procedure for measuring the penetration depth of a standard steel ball into a road surface under the impact of a standard hammer.
Modified Surface Texture Depth (Pestle Method)
This method describes the procedure for the determination of the surface texture depth of road surfaces, by the sand patch technique. This method is only applicable to surface texture depths greater than 0.3 mm. This method was developed from BS…
Stripping Potential of Asphalt - Tensile Strength Ratio
This method sets out the procedures for preparation of specimens and measurement of the change of indirect tensile strength resulting from the effects of saturation and accelerated moisture conditioning. The additional effect of freeze/thaw on…
Asphalt Binder Drain-off
This test method sets out the procedure for determining the amount of binder drain-off likely to occur in an asphalt mix during storage and transport. The method may be used to determine the amount of binder drain-off at the maximum mixing…
