ASTM WK33752

    New Practice for Determining the Critical Cracking Temperature (T critical) for Asphalt Mixtures using the Indirect Tensile Test

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D04.26 | Committee D04 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    This practice will evaluate the creep compliance and strength data for asphalt mixtues generated by the indirect tensile mmethod. A standard practice for the evaluation of this data will allow uniform prediction of the critcal cracking temperature with respect to low temperature.

    There are various methods available to calculate the critical low temperature for cracking of asphalt mixtures and the are documented in the literature. This proposed practice will assist the practictioner with the data analysis.

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
