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…
Calibration of Bitumen Sprayers: Volumetric Calibration of Bitumen Pumping Systems
This test method is for bitumen sprayers as specified in AGPT/T530 Calibration of bitumen sprayers: general introduction and list of methods. It sets out the procedures for determining pump volumetric output, and is based on approach of using a…
Calibration of Bitumen Sprayers: Transverse Distribution by Fixed Pit Facility
This test method is for bitumen sprayers as specified in AGPT/T530 Calibration of bitumen sprayers: general introduction and list of methods. It sets out the procedures for determining the transverse distribution of bitumen sprayers, and is based on…
Calibration of Bitumen Sprayers: Transverse Distribution by Field Mat
This test method is for bitumen sprayers as specified in AGPT/T530 Calibration of bitumen sprayers: general introduction and list of methods. It sets out the procedures for determining the transverse distribution of bitumen sprayers, and is based on…
Calibration of Bitumen Sprayers: Transverse Distribution by Portable Trough
This test method is for bitumen sprayers as specified in AGPT/T530 Calibration of bitumen sprayers: general introduction and list of methods. It sets out the procedures for determining the transverse distribution of bitumen sprayers, and is based on…
Road Speed and Distance Calibration
This test method sets out the procedure for determining the accuracy of road speed indicators used on bitumen sprayers. The road speed of the bitumen sprayer is used in conjunction with the pump volumetric output to enable bituminous materials to be…
Calibration of Bitumen Sprayers: General Introduction and List of Methods
This test method provides an overview of the Austroads sprayer calibration test methods (AGPT/T531 – T536) The application of the binder at the correct design rates depends on the design, manufacture and maintenance of the bitumen sprayer,…
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.
