|Publication Date:||1 January 2019|
This practice covers the use of a Superpave gyratory compactor (SGC) or field cores to prepare 38-mm (1.50-in.) diameter by 110-mm (4.33-in.) height performance test specimens for use in a variety of axial compression and tension performance tests. This practice is intended for densegraded asphalt mixtures with nominal maximum aggregate sizes up to 19.0 mm (0.98 in.).
