Upgrade your skills with the Superpave mix design methods using the gyratory compactor, as well as the utilization of RAP in hot-mix asphalt. Other mix design methods such as Marshall utilize the same materials properties and volumetric principles taught in this class. SMA, OGFC and Warm Mix are also discussed in this course. Classroom activities include aggregate selection and blending, volumetric calculations, and optimum mixture selection. You will experience hands-on laboratory activities and demonstration for aggregate testing, mixing compaction and sample specific gravity (Gmb and Gmm). The Asphalt Institute Mix Design Certification has been accepted by some agencies in the past. You are encouraged to investigate the benefits of obtaining AI Certification with local governing agencies to determine the benefits of AI Certification in your area. The Asphalt Institute does not maintain a list of agencies that accept our certification. See for future dates.

Extraction & Recovery Test These tests remove asphalt binder from the asphalt mixture by chemical solvent. They are useful for mixture investigation and research to measure binder properties after the construction or from in-place pavements. First the binder is “washed” from the aggregate using a solvent. Next the mineral fines are removed from the asphalt-solvent blend by a high speed centrifuge. Finally the solvent is removed from the binder using rotary evaporation unit, ASTM D5404.

Basic Mixture Technician Training 3.5 day course

Developed during SHRP, the 4-point beam fatigue apparatus allows one to measure the flexibility of a mixture usually through repeated strain cycles. Commonly used for understanding fatigue failure, it is not limited to only classic pavement fatigue. This test is also used to understand the brittleness of a mixture. At extreme high strains, this device is used to simulate the joint movement of Portland cement concrete (PCC) joints. This is a destructive test.

This course will educate and instruct inexperienced and experienced technicians on the methods and procedures for testing asphalt mixtures and aggregates. Students will be instructed on how to perform tests according to AASHTO and ASTM standards specific for Superpave Mix Design. Our trainers will explain and demonstrate tests while students will be guided and enabled in the processes of aggregate sampling and batching, testing aggregate properties, mixing and compacting the asphalt mixture, and finally testing the compacted samples. Class size is limited to a maximum of six (6) students. Class time will be utilized to explain each test, calculations, and comparison of values for each test performed. Basic concepts of asphalt and aggregate mixtures will be taught and how they relate to the tests performed. Most of the course time will be spent in the laboratory practicing the detailed testing procedures. This course is not exhaustive as compared to AI’s Mixture Design Training (MDT) in the processes of mix design and should be primarily used as a course to learn the methods and procedures for determining the volumetric properties of the aggregate and asphalt mixture.

(tests for rutting) Flow Number test is a new and upcoming rutting test that seems to predict rutting potential well. This is a destructive test.

Indirect Tension Test (IDT) – Creep and Strength (low temperature crack prediction) Also developed by SHRP, the IDT creep and strength tests measure the low temperature compliance (ability of a mixture to relax at cold temperatures) and the fracture strength of a mixture at temperatures well below freezing. This test is used to predict the low temperature cracking temperature of a mixture. The fracture strength is a destructive test.

Disk-Shaped Compact Tension (tests fracture energy) The Disk-Shaped Compact Tension test, DC(t), is one of several fracture energy tests. It measures how much energy it takes to crack a sample. This test is run on 150mm (6 in) diameter lab samples or cores. It is one of the few tests that can measure mixture properties on cores as thin as 25mm (1 in). The DC(t) test is typically run at cold temperatures.

Testing Webinar - Interpreting Asphalt Test Results

Dynamic Shear Rheometer (DSR)

1.5 PDHs This webinar presents information on the test results associated with asphalt mixtures and their related components that are generated during a project. The purpose of each test is presented, as well $ 50 as the potential ramifications of failing test results for each test.

Also known as an oscillatory shear rheometer. Is used to measure the flow properties of liquid asphalt binders at intermediate (i.e., 20ºC) to high (i.e., 64ºC) temperatures. Works by applying a sinusoidal shear stress to produce a resulting shear strain. The complex shear modulus (G*) is a ratio of the applied shear stress (t) to the resulting shear strain (g). The phase angle, d , (related to the time lag between input and output signals) provides a relative indication of the viscous and elastic behavior of the asphalt binder.

Webinar - Certification: What you should know about training binder technicians This informational 30-minute webinar details Asphalt Institute’s National Binder Technician Certification (NBTC) program. NBTC was developed in response to a nationally recognized need for a standard laboratory best practice in PG binder testing and a way to certify that it is being followed. FREE

Rolling Thin Film Oven (RTFO) The RTFO simulates the ‘thin films’ of binder as they are exposed to heat and forced air during the mixing process and placement. A sample is poured into a cylindrical bottle and rotated horizontally at approximate mixing temperatures. As the bottle rotates and air is blown over the sample, new thin films are exposed simulating the binder coating on the aggregate during mixing.

Pressure Aging Vessel (PAV)

Direct Tension (DTT)

Asphalt binders are exposed to high temperature (100ºC) and air pressure (2.07 MPa) for 20 hours to simulate long-term aging. Resulting viscosity of the PAV-aged asphalt binder is approximately 8+ times the viscosity of the unaged asphalt binder.

Used to measure failure properties of an asphalt binder at low (i.e., -12ºC) temperatures. Provides an indication of the failure stress and strain of an asphalt binder. The Direct Tension Test was originally used as a referee test when the m-value from BBR results passed but the estimated stiffness failed and was between 300 and 600 MPa. If the average strain value from the DTT was 1% or more, it could be assumed the binder was sufficiently elastic at the tested low temperature range.

Other tests include: Absolute Viscosity, Kinematic Viscosity, Apparent Viscosity of Non-Newtonian Bitumens (ASTM D4957), Rotational Viscosity, Penetration, Specific Gravity, Softening Point, Flash Point, Solubility (ASTM D2042), Ductility, Elastic Recovery, Force Ductility, Screen Test, Thin Film Oven, Separation.

Bending Beam Rheometer (BBR) Used to measure the flow properties of liquid asphalt binders at low (i.e., -12ºC) temperatures. Is analogous to the DSR – which is not used at low temperatures because of the torque capability of the equipment. Operates on engineering beam principles. A fixed static load is applied to an asphalt binder beam of known dimensions. The resulting deflection is measured and the flexural stiffness reported as a function of time. Provides an indication of the low temperature stiffness and cracking potential of an asphalt binder.

IS-169 A Pavement Rating System for Low-Volume Asphalt Roads

Rising materials costs have the managers of our infrastructure seeking better, more cost-effective ways of managing assets for which they are responsible. With these increasing costs, the value of our in-place materials rises, and they become more expensive to maintain at an acceptable level of service. Managers of these assets are seeing greater and greater value in using a pavement management system (PMS) to better maintain their system and do it in a more cost-effective manner. This Asphalt Institute webinar will provide the attendee with the principles of a PMS, the benefits that can be realized with its use, and limitations that need to be considered.
