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.
