This practice covers the standard for the preparation of cylindrical specimens of bituminous paving mixture suitable for dynamic modulus tests. This is intended for dense-graded bituminous concrete mixtures containing aggregates. The test specimens shall be prepared with accordance to other ASTM documents prescribed herein. The procedure for preparing the cylindrical specimens using a California kneading compactor include placing the compaction mold in position in the mold holder and inserting a paper disk to cover the base plate of the mold holder. Using a variable transformer, the compactor foot is maintained sufficiently hot. Using a paddle of suitable dimensions, push the mixture into the mold. After compaction, a static load is applied to the specimen using a compression testing machine. After reaching the applied pressure as prescribed herein, the load is released immediately. After cooling, the specimen is removed from the mold and placed on a smooth flat surface.View Less
