Standard Test Methods for Resistance to Deformation and Cohesion of Asphalt Mixtures by Means of Hveem Apparatus
|Publication Date:||1 July 2015|
These test methods cover the determination of (1) the resistance to deformation of compacted asphalt mixtures by measuring the lateral pressure developed when applying a vertical load by means of the Hveem stabilometer and (2) the cohesion of compacted asphalt mixtures by measuring the force required to break or bend the sample as a cantilever beam by means of the Hveem cohesiometer.2
The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard, with the exception that the steel shot flow rate for the cohesiometer is expressed in g/min units. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
The text of this standard references notes and footnotes which provide explanatory material. These notes and footnotes (excluding those in tables and figures) shall not be considered as requirements of the standard.
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.
2 A more detailed description of the procedures for performing the tests is available on request from the California Dept. of Transportation, 5900 Folsom Blvd., Sacramento, CA 95819. Also available is a procedure containing details regarding the operation and calibration of the stabilometer and the replacement of the stabilometer diaphragm.
