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.
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…
Resilient Modulus of Foamed Bitumen Stabilised Materials
This method describes the procedure for the laboratory determination of the resilient modulus of test cylinders of foamed bitumen stabilised mixes using repeat load indirect tensile techniques.
Mixing of Foamed Bitumen Stabilised Materials
This method describes the procedure for adding foamed bitumen to a granular material to produce foamed bitumen stabilised material. The method is applicable to materials with a maximum nominal particle size of 40 mm (i.e. 100% passing the 37.5 mm…
Compaction of Test Cylinders of Foamed Bitumen Stabilised Materials Part 1: Dynamic Compaction using Marshall Drop Hammer
This method describes the procedure for compacting cylindrical test specimens suitable for use in the determination of physical properties. The method is applicable to materials with a maximum nominal particle size of 40 mm (i.e. 100% passing the 37.…
Determining the Foaming Characteristics of Bitumen
Foaming of bitumen permits the bitumen to be evenly distributed throughout a soil or a granular material. It is critical for the bitumen to remain as viable foam for a period to enable it to be successfully blended into the host material.
