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.
