A CYLINDER VISCOMETER TO MEASURE THE VISCOSITY OF ROAD BINDERS IN THE RANGE OF 10 TO THE 8TH POWER-10 TO THE 11TH POWER POISES

A CYLINDER VISCOMETER WAS DEVELOPED CAPABLE OF MEASURING VISCOSITY OF SMALL QUANTITIES (2 G.) OF BITUMINOUS BINDERS AT VERY HIGH VISCOSITY LEVELS, 10 TO THE 8TH POWER - TO THE 11TH POWER. THE TEST IS BASED ON THE DEFORMATION OF A CYLINDER OF BINDER UNDER A KNOWN LOAD AT A CONTROLLED TEMPERATURE. THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE INSTRUMENT PROVIDES A USEFUL TOOL FOR STUDYING THE CHANGES IN THE VISCOSITY OF RECOVERED BINDERS ON AGING AND WEATHERING IN SERVICE. /ARTICLE/
