MODIFIED PROCEDURE FOR MEASURING THE MAXIMUM SPECIFIC GRAVITY OF BITUMINOUS PAVING MIXTURES

An accurate measurement of the maximum specific gravity of bituminous paving mixtures G/m/m is needed for a reliable air voids analysis of the mixtures in the design and control phases. This paper presents a procedure for measuring the maximum specific gravity with the use of methanol. In general, the test was found to be fast and simple, with highly repeatable results.
