Austroads Test Methods and Specifications
This document provides a hyperlinked list of the Austroads Test Methods and Specifications.
Guide to Pavement Technology Part 4D: Stabilised Materials
The use of stabilisation technology for stabilising and recycling materials for pavement construction and maintenance is widely accepted as a cost-effective method of improving long‑term performance and reducing whole-of-life costs of modern,…
Flexural Beam Test Methods for Cemented Materials
This test method describes the methods for the determination of the flexural modulus, strength and fatigue characteristics of laboratory‑manufactured cemented materials using four point bending techniques.
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…
Webinar: Geopolymer Concrete and its Applications
This webinar, presented on 1 May 2018, outlines the findings of an Austroads geopolymer concrete project and a current update of the use, monitoring and specification of geopolymer concrete by VicRoads over the past nine years. The webinar was…
National Performance-based Asphalt Specification Framework

Part 4B of the Austroads Guide to Pavement Technology provides a recommended approach to the design and characterisation of asphalt mixes in Australia and New Zealand. However, the approach to asphalt mix design and performance characterisation…
