    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This test method covers procedures for preparing and testing asphalt mixtures to determine dynamic modulus values.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D04 on Road and Paving Materials, this test method was withdrawn in August 2009. This standard is being withdrawn without replacement because it is an old test method that is no longer useful.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers procedures for preparing and testing asphalt mixtures to determine dynamic modulus values. The procedure described covers a range of both temperature and loading frequency. The minimum recommended test series consists of testing at 41, 77, and 104°F (5, 25, and 40°C) at loading frequencies of 1, 4, and 16 Hz for each temperature.

    1.2 This method is applicable to asphalt paving mixtures similar to mixes 3A, 4A, 5A, 6A, and 7A, as defined by Specification D 3515.

    1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
