    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This test method provided procedures for determining a unique failure point for estimating the fatigue life of 380 mm (14.96 in.) long by 50 mm (1.97 in.) thick by 63 mm (2.48 in.) wide asphalt concrete beam specimens sawed from laboratory or field compacted asphalt concrete, which are subjected to repeated flexural bending.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D04 on Road and Paving Materials, this test method was withdrawn in June 2019 in accordance with section 10.6.3 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the end of the eighth year since the last approval date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method provides procedures for determining a unique failure point for estimating the fatigue life of 380 mm (14.96 in.) long by 50 mm (1.97 in.) thick by 63 mm (2.48 in.) wide asphalt concrete beam specimens sawed from laboratory or field compacted asphalt concrete, which are subjected to repeated flexural bending.

    1.2 The between-laboratory reproducibility of this test method is being determined and will be available on or before June 2013. Therefore, this test method should not be used for acceptance or rejection of a material for purchasing purposes.

    1.3 The text of this standard references notes and footnotes which provide explanatory material. These notes and footnotes (excluding those in tables and figures) shall not be considered as requirements of the standard.

    1.4 UnitsThe values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. Other units of measurement included in this standard are for information only.

    1.5 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.
