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.
Webinar: Bituminous Binders and Selection and Design of Sprayed Seals: Guide to Pavement Technology Parts 4F and 4K
This webinar, presented on 31 October 2018, provides an overview of the key changes to the Guide to Pavement Technology Parts 4F and 4K, and the significant advances in the areas of binder specifications and sprayed seal design.
Guide to Pavement Technology Part 4K: Selection and Design of Sprayed Seals
Guide to Pavement Technology Part 4K: Selection and Design of Sprayed Seals is a guide to the procedures for the selection and design of sprayed seals. This is an update of previous Austroads procedures based on the philosophy of filling up voids in…
Guide to Pavement Technology Part 2: Pavement Structural Design
Guide to Pavement Technology Part 2: Pavement Structural Design provides advice for the structural design of sealed road pavements. The advice has been generally developed from the approaches followed by the Austroads member agencies. However, as it…
Linked Work Tips Index
This linked index of the Pavement Work Tips is designed to help practitioners easily access the more than 50 publications in the Work Tips collection.
Austroads LTPP/LTPPM Study - Final Summary Report 2017-18
The report provides a summary of works undertaken during the period 2017–18 for Austroads project AT1064 – Long-term pavement performance (LTPP). The weakest element of Pavement Management Systems currently in place or being developed in…
Performance of Asphalt and Spray Grade PMBs in Asphalt Mixes
The Australian polymer modified binder (PMB) specification (AGPT/T190) currently requires different binder grades to be used in sprayed sealing and asphalt applications. This study compared the performance of PMBs representing four AGPT/T190 grades…
Design and Performance of Foamed Bitumen Stabilised Pavements
There is a need to improve the Austroads procedures for mix design and structural design of foamed bitumen stabilised (FBS) materials. This final report summarises the mix design test methods developed within the context of an Austroads mix design…
Stress Ratio of Bituminous Binders using the Dynamic Shear Rheometer
This test method sets out the procedures for the measurement of the stress ratio of binder samples under specific conditions using the dynamic shear rheometer (DSR). A major failure mode of sprayed seals and asphalt pavements is fatigue cracking of…
Viscosity of Calibration Fluid
This test method sets out the procedure for validating the calibration fluid. The calibration fluid is used for volumetric calibration of bitumen sprayer pumps (AGPT/T531), and also for two methods of determining transverse distribution of bitumen…
