DUCTILITY TESTING APPRATUS IS : 1028 - 1958, ASTM : D113, IP 32,55.

In flexible pavement construction, bitumen binders are used. It is important that bituminous material forms ductile thin film around the aggregates, which serves as a binder. The binder materialness of sufficient ductility renders pervious pavement surface and leads to development of cracks. Therefore it is important to carry out the ductility tests on betumenus material. Ductility is defined as distance in cms to which a standard briquette to bitumen can be stretched before the thread breaks. The briquette is streched at a rate of 50mm/minute +/-2.5 mm per minute at a temprature of 27 degree celcious +/-0.5 degree celcious.

Specifications :

The apparatus consists of a water bath with a thermostatic heater, and a circulating pump to maintain uniform water temperature. One half of the briquette mouldsis fixed on a fixed palate in the water bath, the other half of the briquette mould is fixed to a carrier which slides over a rotating thread shaft with a cluch. The motor or gears to rotate the shaft are housed in a cabinet fixed above the other end of the bath. A pointer fixed to the carrier moves over a scale graduated to 0 - 110cm x 1mm fixed on the bath with "0"(zero) of the scale towards the fixed plate slide. The rotating shaft has 2 speeds of travel for the bracket,5 cm/min.and1cm/min.,

selected by a cluch. Water bath is provided with a drain. A heater with thermostatic control is fixed inside the water bath. Control switches for motor, stirer, heater indicator lamps are fixed at a convenient place on the water bath, Completer with the three briquette moulds and one base plate, all made of brass. operates on 230 volts A.C., single phase.

Accessories :
1.Thermometer IP 38 c, range 23 degree celcious to 27 degree celcious 2. Ductility mould with base plate.

STRIPPING VALUE APPARATUS

For determining Stripping value of bitumenous mixes having aggregate size 1.0 mm to 75 microns. Specifications :A circular tray rotates in a vertical plane at a rate of approximately 100 r.p.m. by an electrical geared motor. 4 bottles of approximately 400 cc are mounted on this circular tray at an angle of 90 degree to each with their mouth towards center of the tray. A time switch is provided.Suitable for operation on 230 volts A.C. single phase.

BENKLEMAN BEAM

This device was developed by U.S. Bureau of Public Roads and is used to measure deflection of flexible pavements. The light weight instrument is supplied in two parts for assembling on site with easy hand tools. In use one end of the beam rests at a point under investigation while the beam is pivoted at the center. The free end carries a dial gauge to record the deflections. The other end is kept on a stable platform. The beam ratio is 2:1 which nagnifies even small deflections. Supplied with a dial guage 0.01x25mm. This is a light weight dismantleable instrument and easy to carry.

CENTRIFUGE EXTRACTOR(HAND OPERATED)
ASTM : D2172, AASHO: T-58, T-164.

This instrument is used for determination and checking of bitumen percentage in bitumenous mix, the mix is added with a solvent and dissolved bitumen is removed by centrifugal action. Consists of a removal aluminium rotor bowl, capacity 1500gms. with a cap and tightening nut. The bowl assembly is mounted on a vertical shaft which protrudes from a cast housing. This shaft and thus the bowl is rotated fast manually by enclosed gears in the cast body and handle. Solvent is introduced during the test through the holes in the cap of the housing. a drain is provided to collect dissolved bitumen coming out of the rotating bowl and getting collected in the housing.

MARSHALL STABILITY TEST APPRATUS ASTM : D 1559 - T - 62

MARSHALL STABILITY TEST APPRATUS
ASTM : D 1559 - T - 62

Originally devoloped by Brause Marshall, a highway engineer in U.S.A. later on standerdised by ASTM. Generally the test is applicable to hot mix designs using bitumen and aggregates upto a maximum size of 25 mm. In this meatheod, the resistance to plastic deformation of cylindrical specimen of bitumenous mixture is measured when the same is loaded at periphery at 5 cm per min. This test procedure is used in designing and evaluating bitumenous paving mixes.The test procedures is extensively used in routine test programmes for paving jobs.There are two major features of the marshall meatheod of designing mixes namely.
a) Density - voids analysis b)Stability - flow tests.
The marshall stability of mix is defined as a maximum load carried by a compacted specimen at a standered test temprature of 60 degree celcious. The flow value is deformation the marshall test specimen under goes during the loading upto the maximum load, in 0.25mm units.In this test and attempt is made to determine optimum binder content for the type of aggregate mix and traffic intensity.
The appratus consists of :
1)A Loading unit motorised, capacity 5000kgf with two telescopic pillars and an adjustable cross head. Limit switches are fitted inside to control upwards and downwards movement of the pillars.On-off reversing switch and indicator lamps are on the front side while a hand wheel to manually move the pillarsis on the right.
