This is the third edition of the AASHTO Provisional Standards. It contains an updated version of 47 of the 49 Provisional Standards previously published in the second edition dated March 1995 and 13 new ones for a total of 60 Provisional Standards. Two of the previously published Provisional Standards were accorded the status of full standards and will be included in the 18th Edition of the AASHTO Standard Specifications for Transportation Materials and Methods of Sampling and Testing. The format for the Provisional Standards was developed by AASHTO in 1993, with an objective of providing a mechanism for early distribution of materials specifications and test methods resulting from the Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP) and other research. The subjects covered by the 60 Provisional Standards are as follows: soils; aggregates; environmental quality; metallic materials and coatings for bridges; box culvert, culvert pipe and drain tile; bituminous materials; concrete; and pavement structures.
