Characterisation of the Viscosity of Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement (RAP) Binder Using the Dynamic Shear Rheometer (DSR)
This test method sets out the procedure for the determination of viscosity of binders recovered from RAP source materials, as well as of virgin binders and rejuvenators. The viscosity is determined under specific conditions of oscillation loading,…
Determination of the International Roughness Index (IRI) using ARRB Walking Profiler
The ARRB TR Walking Profiler is pushed over the pavement surface by an operator at a slow walking pace. It is assumed that the reader is familiar with the Walking Profiler Instruction Manual published by ARRB Transport Research and/or has a copy…
Shear Properties of Polymer Modified Binders (ARRB ELASTOMETER)
This test method sets out the procedures for the determination of consistency, consistency 6%, stiffness and elastic recovery of polymer modified binders (ARRB elastometer), under specific conditions of deformation, using the elastometer developed…
Pavement Deflection Measurement with a Falling Weight Deflectometer (FWD)
This test method defines the procedure for measuring the deflection response of road pavements using a Falling Weight Deflectometer (FWD).
Distance Measurement Validation of Road Condition Monitoring Vehicles
This test method defines the procedure for validating the distance measurement performance of vehicles conducting road condition monitoring surveys (e.g. inertial laser profilometers, Falling Weight Deflectometers, etc.).
Pavement Deflection Measurement with a Deflectograph
This test method defines the procedure for measuring the maximum deflection and curvature of road pavements using a deflectograph.
Particle Size and Properties of Crumb Rubber
This method describes a procedure for determining the particle size, shape and contaminants of crumb rubber.
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.
Protocol for Handling Modified Binders in Preparation for Laboratory Testing
This test method adopts the principles of AS 2341.21 and applies these to modified binders that are to be tested in accordance with the test methods set out by Austroads. Such bindersinclude polymer modified bitumen and multigrade bitumen.
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…
