ASTM International - ASTM D6390-99
Standard Test Method for Determination of Draindown Characteristics in Uncompacted Asphalt Mixtures
|Publication Date:||10 February 1999|
|ICS Code (Binders. Sealing materials):||91.100.50|
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the amount of draindown in an uncompacted asphalt mixture sample when the sample is held at elevated tempertures comparable to those encountered during the production, storage, transport, and placement of the mixture. The test is particularly applicable to mixtures such as porous asphalt (open-graded friction course) and stone matrix asphalt (SMA).
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, 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.
