    1. Scope

    Create a standard practice(s) for use in laboratories that compact bituminous mixture slabs for repeated flexural bending

    There are multiple new bituminous mixture slab compactors on the market. A Standard practice is needed to bring some uniformity to how laboratories prepare these slabs in the the laboratory. A typical use for bituminous mixture slabs is for a repeated flexural bending test such as ASTM D7460 or AASHTO T-321
