ASTM WK34713

    New Practice for New Practice for Preparation of Compacted Slab Asphalt Mixture samples Using Roller Compactors

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D04.20 | Committee D04 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    This standard practice provides guidance for the preparation of compacted asphalt slab samples

    More testing laboratories have obtained the capability of running the standard test method for determine fatigue failure of compacted asphalt concrete subjected to repeated flexural bending. As the test standard has grown in use, it is necessary to now address the method of compaction for these samples as well as other tests that may require larger and other samples that cannot be produced by gyratory compactors.


    Beam Fatigue, Four Point Bending Beam, asphalt concrete fatigue; asphalt concrete flexural testing; asphalt concrete stiffness; asphalt concrete tensile testing;:fatigue life; flexural bending

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