ASTM WK59386

    New Test Method for Field Measurement of Asphalt Mixture Temperatures by Hand Held Temperature Measurement Sensors

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D04.30 | Committee D04 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    This standard presents methods for taking field measurements of the temperature of asphalt mixtures using hand-held devices. The applications include measuring the temperature during storage, transport, and pavement laydown and compaction.

    There is currently not a standard in ASTM that describes these activities. This standard would be beneficial to asphalt mixture producers and field paving technicians as a method to measure the temperature with hand-held devices, such as infrared non-contact or direct contact methods, for quality control.

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