A METHOD FOR FOLLOWING THE HARDENING OF PAVING BITUMENS IN SERVICE

A description is given of a method for the recovery of 'gram' quantities of bitumen from samples of 'spray and chip' surface seals and plant mix pavement layers for measurement of 'apparent' viscosity by the 'shell' sliding plate viscometer. Examples of the application of the method and estimates of its 'within' laboratory precision are given. The method can be used for routine investigation purposes if the arrb durability test equipment is available. /TRRL/
