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 …
