Laboratory test procedure to determine Kinematic viscosity of bitumen as per IS-1206 -1978, Part –III

Test Importance In all bituminous works bitumen is required to be heated up to a definite temperature, so that the specific grade of bitumen may reach at its proper viscosity label, so that it can be mixed correctly with the aggregates to get a homogenous mix. Definition of Kinematic Viscosity It may be defined as …

Interpretation of Falling weight deflectometer data to determine elastic modulus of different road layer

FWD VS BBD Previously Benkleman beam method is used to design overlay of any overloaded road section. But this method had some limitations. Benkleman beam method used to measure of deflection of road under static load condition which is totally opposed to actual dynamic wheel load. It is generally adopted for low specification bituminous layer …
