AASHTO TP 113
Standard Method of Test for Determination of Asphalt Binder Resistance to Ductile Failure Using Double-Edge-Notched Tension (DENT) Test
|Publication Date:||1 January 2015|
This test method covers the determination of an asphalt binder's resistance to ductile failure using a double-edge-notched tension (DENT) test.
The test is conducted after thermal conditioning to determine the essential work of failure, the plastic work of failure, and an approximate critical crack tip opening displacement at a specified temperature and rate of loading.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.
