    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D04.40 | Committee D04 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    This standard covers asphalt binders grade by performance using the multiple stress creep and recovery (MSCR) test. Grading designations are related to the LTPPBind algorithm maximum pavement design temperature, the minimum pavement design temperature and traffic loading. This specification incorporates Test Method D7405 for determining non-recoverable creep compliance Jnr. S, H, V, and E designations must be specified for standard, high, very high or extremely high traffic loading, respectively.

    State Agencies will use this standard
