Users of this standard are cautioned that compliance with Specification D alone does not completely assure reliable results. This test method is for use with dense graded asphalt mixtures prepared with asphalt cement modified and unmodifiedcutback asphalt, tar, and tar-rubber with maximum size aggregate up to 1 in.

Stability, flow, density, air voids, and voids filled with asphalt binder, may be plotted against binder content to allow selection of an optimum binder content for the mixture. The source of the variation should be resolved and the problem corrected. This includes mixing efficiency and aging.

ASTM D – 06 Standard Test Method for Marshall Stability and Flow of Bituminous Mixtures

Iva Company info Privacy policy Link to Active This link will always route wstm the current Active version of the standard. Pre-calibrated proving ring of 5 tones capacity is fixed on the upper end of the machine, specimen contained in the test head is placed in between the base and the proving ring. Subscribe to our Newsletter. Marshall stability and flow may also be used to relatively evaluate different mixes and the effects of conditioning such as with water.

D69277 machine is supplied complete with load ring, 30 kN cap. One source of error in testing field cores arises when the side of the core is not smooth or perpendicular to the core faces. Follow us YouTube LinkedIn. Marshall stability and flow may also be determined using field cores from in situ pavement for information or awtm.

ASTM D6927

Least count of 0. What are Road Cracks? The load jack produces a uniform vertical moment of 5 cm per minute. A real-time test graph and transducer data are displayed on the touchscreen. This facilitates adequate space for placing test head system after one d692 has been tested. The main advantage of this machine is its high flexibility as a general purpose testing system, ensured by its generous dimensions which allow the placement of an Popular in this Category.


ASTM D Standard

The 50kN capacity and fully variable speed of 0. The magnitude of Marshall Stability varies with aggregate type and grading and bitumen type, grade and amount. Flexible Pavement Definition and Explanation.

CBR tests on soils; Marshall tests on asphalt; uniaxial and unconfined tests on soils and rocks; compression tests on low stregth concrete, cement and groundcement Maintenance Spares Technical trainings Warranty Academy.

As an alternative method, Marshall stability can also be defined as the load obtained, when the rate of loading increase begins to decrease, such that the curve starts to become horizontal, as shown in the bottom graph of Fig. If flow at the selected optimum binder content is above the upper limit, the mix is considered too plastic or unstable and if below the lower limit, it is considered too brittle.

The dial gauge of the flow meter should be able to measure accurately the total vertical moment upward.

All the accessories have to be ordered separately. Marshal test is extensively used in routine test programs for the paving jobs.

Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. For the purpose of mix design, Marshall stability and flow test results should consist of the average of a minimum of three specimens at each increment of binder content where the binder content varies in one-half percent increments over a range of binder content. A limit switch is provided for the bottom limit of travel. Other types of compaction may cause specimens to have different stress strain characteristics than specimens prepared by Marshall impact compaction.

General lab – Water baths: Machine is capable of reversing its moment downward also. As shown in Fig. Such conditions can create stress concentrations in loading and low Marshall stability. The flow is measured as the deformation in units of 0.


The Marshall Test can be conducted with two different types of equipment: How they are Formed. Home Products Search results Results for: The load jack, DC motor and controls are housed in an ergonomic cabinet.

The quality of the results produced by this standard are dependent on the competence of the personnel performing the procedure and the capability, calibration, and maintenance of the equipment used. The machine is fit with a precision strain gauge load cell and displacement transducer, both connected to the Digimax This test attempts to get the optimum binder content for the aggregate mix type and traffic intensity.

Marshall compression tester A bench mounted compression frame with motor and worm gear housed within the base unit. It is provided with a gear system to lift the upward direction. The front panel is fitted with an emergency button for prompt stopping of the machine. The machine has built-in data acquisition with four channels dedicated to two strain gauge load cells and two potentiometric linear transducers; one of each can be used during the test.

Reliable results depend on many factors; following the suggestions of Specification D or some similar acceptable guideline provides a means of evaluating and controlling some of those factors. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard. However, depending on the composition and behavior of the mixture, a less defined type of failure has been observed, as illustrated in Fig.
