BS 598:SAMPLING AND EXAMINATION OF BITUMINOUS MIXTURES FOR ROADS AND OTHER PAVED AREAS. PART 104: METHODS OF TEST FOR THE DETERMINATION OF DENSITY AND COMPACTION

This part of BS 598 describes two methods for determining the density and compaction of bituminous mixtures for roads and other paved areas. The first method describes how to determine the percentage refusal density of core samples of 150mm nominal diameter cut from compacted bituminous mixtures. This method is intended to apply only to coated macadam dense roadbases or basecourses that have cooled to ambient temperatures and have a minimum layer thickness complying with table 1 of BS4987: part 2 : 1983. The second method describes how to measure the density of cores. This method is a re-issue of clause 8 of BS 598 : Part 3 : 1985 (see IRRD 285401) which is now deleted from that part by amendment. For previous parts of this standard see IRRD nos 285733,212248 809943,809944,and 828490.
