Over deze norm
1.1 This practice covers the process of drying compacted asphalt mixture specimens using vacuum drying apparatus.
1.2 The specimens dried by this practice remain at room temperature, which helps in maintaining specimen integrity during the drying process.
1.3 This practice can be used for compacted cylindrical and cubical laboratory and field asphalt mixture specimens.
1.4 This practice can also be used for drying other construction materials such as concrete, soils, aggregates, and loose asphalt mixtures. Use the manufacturer’s recommendations for drying other construction materials.
1.5 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard.
