BITUMINOUS MIX DENSITY BY COATED SPECIMEN

A NEW METHOD OF TEST HAS BEEN DEVISED AS AN IMPROVEMENT ON THE OLD TEST METHOD USING A PARAFFIN SEAL ON THE CORES. MODERN BLISTER PACKAGING METHODS, WHICH ARE DESCRIBED AND ILLUSTRATED, ARE USED TO FIT A PLASTIC JACKET TO EACH CORE AND PREVENT WATER PENETRATION DURING WEIGHT IN WATER DETERMINATION. THE PLASTIC COATED PROCEDURE RESULTS IN THE MOST PREDICTABLE DENSITY. THE TIME REQUIRED IS NOT SIGNIFICANTLY GREATER THAN THE SATURATED METHOD AND THE COST OF PROCESSING IS NOMINAL. /AUTHOR/
