TRIAXIAL TESTING OF BITUMINOUS MIXTURES

INTEREST IN USING A TRIAXIAL SHEAR STRENGTH METHOD OF TEST, PARTICULARLY AS A MEANS OF EVALUATING FUNDAMENTAL STRENGTH PROPERTIES OF BITUMINOUS MIXTURES, HAS INCREASED. AT THE PRESENT TIME THERE ARE SEVERAL TECHNIQUES IN USE THAT UTILIZE THE PRINCIPLES OF TRIAXIAL SHEAR TESTING FOR THE DESIGN AND STRENGTH EVALUATION OF BITUMINOUS CONCRETE MIXTURES. THE STATUS OF TRIAXIAL TESTING AS A MIX DESIGN METHOD AND RESEARCH TOOL IS SUMMARIZED ALONG WITH THE VARIOUS TRIAXIAL TEST PROCEDURES THAT ARE BEING USED.
