Bituminous mixtures - Test methods - Part 17: Particle loss of porous asphalt specimens
|Publication Date:||1 February 2017|
|ICS Code (Road construction materials):||93.080.20|
This European Standard specifies a test method for determining the particle loss of porous asphalt mixtures. Particle loss is assessed by the loss of mass of porous asphalt samples after turns in the Los Angeles machine. This test enables the estimation of the abrasion resistance of porous asphalt. The test applies to laboratory compacted cylindrical specimens of porous asphalt mixtures, the upper sieve size of which does not exceed 22,4 mm. It does not reflect the abrasive effect by studded tyres.
