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

1. Scope

The scope of the Committee shall be the promotion of knowledge, stimulation of research, and the development of standards pertaining to asphalt materials used in pavements, asphalt surface treatments, aggregates used in asphalt mixtures, graded aggregate used in bases or subbases, and to other materials, products, systems, and services incidental to all types of highway and transportation construction and maintenance. The types of standards developed include, but are not limited to, specifications, test methods, practices, guides, and terminology.

The work of this Committee will be coordinated with other ASTM committees and other organizations having mutual interest.
The activities shall be coordinated with other ASTM Committees when necessary.
The area of interest of the Committee is materials used in the construction and maintenance of highways, and other transportation construction.


asphalt mixture; temperature; field measurement


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.
