Standard Method of Test for Moisture Sensitivity Using Hydrostatic Pore Pressure to Determine Cohesion and Adhesion Strength of Compacted Asphalt Mixture Specimens

active, Most Current
Organization: AASHTO
Publication Date: 1 January 2022
Status: active
Page Count: 10
scope:

This test method includes procedures for preparing compacted asphalt mixture specimens, exposing the specimens to prolonged exposure to moisture and hydrostatic pore pressure inside an enclosed chamber and testing the effect of water on the tensile strength and swell of the specimens.

The values stated in either SI units or U.S. Customary units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.

This standard may involve hazardous materials, operations, and equipment. It does not purport to address all of the safety concerns 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.

The quality of the results produced by this standard are dependent on the competence of the personnel performing the procedure and the capability, calibration, and maintenance of the equipment used. Agencies that meet the criteria of R 18 are generally considered capable of competent and objective testing/sampling/inspection/etc. Users of this standard are cautioned that compliance with R 18 alone does not completely assure reliable results. Reliable results depend on many factors; following the suggestions of R 18 or some similar acceptable guideline provides a means of evaluating and controlling some of those factors.
