Determination of Permanent Deformation and Resilient Modulus Characteristics of Unbound Granular Materials Under Drained Conditions
This method covers the determination of both the permanent deformation and resilient modulus of unbound pavement materials with a maximum particle size not exceeding 19 mm using repeated load triaxial equipment incorporating, static confining…
Validation and Repeatability Checks for a Deflectograph
This test method defines the procedures for collecting reference data and for conducting the validation and repeatability checks for deflectograph equipment.
Stripping Potential of Asphalt - Tensile Strength Ratio
This method sets out the procedures for preparation of specimens and measurement of the change of indirect tensile strength resulting from the effects of saturation and accelerated moisture conditioning. The additional effect of freeze/thaw on…
Asphalt Binder Drain-off
This test method sets out the procedure for determining the amount of binder drain-off likely to occur in an asphalt mix during storage and transport. The method may be used to determine the amount of binder drain-off at the maximum mixing…
Pre-treatment and Loss on Heating of Bitumen Multigrade and Polymer Binders (Rolling Thin Film Oven [RTFO] Test)
This test method sets out the procedures for RTFO pre-treating a wide range of binders and the determination of the loss on heating of asphalt grade binders including bitumens, polymer modified binders and multigrade binders. The method provides a…
Measurement of Loose Aggregate on Sprayed Seals
This test method sets out the procedure for determining the quantity of loose aggregate on the surface of a sprayed seal.
Seal Behaviour
This method describes the procedure for the recovery of sprayed seal samples from the pavement without disturbing the sealing aggregate orientation. The method stipulates how the void content of the sample is determined.
Penetration of Road Based by Bituminous Primers or Primer Binders
This test method sets out the procedure for assessing the degree of absorption of a primer or primerbinder by a given road gravel in bituminous surfacing work.
Softening Point of Polymer Modified Binders
This test method sets out the procedure for determination of the softening point of polymer modified binders.
Handling Viscosity of Polymer Modified Binders (Brookfield Thermosel)
This test method sets out the procedure for determining the apparent viscosity of PMBs at temperatures above 100°C, using the Brookfield Thermosel rotational viscometer.
