Standard Test Method for Sieve Analysis of Mineral Filler for Bituminous Paving Mixtures
|Publication Date:||1 December 2010|
|ICS Code (Road construction materials):||93.080.20|
significance And Use:
The method is used to determine compliance of mineral fillers with the grading requirements of Specification D242.
1.1 This test method covers the sieve analysis of mineral fillers used in bituminous paving mixtures.
1.2 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound 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.
Note 1-Regarding sieves, per ASTM Specification E11, "the values stated in SI units shall be considered standard for the dimensions of the wire cloth openings and the diameter of the wires used in the wire cloth." When sieve mesh sizes are referenced, the alternate inch-pound designations are provided for information purposes and enclosed in parentheses.
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.
