Determining accurate asphalt content of mixtures is critical, particularly as the quantity of recycled materials allowed during production increases. TRB hosted a webinar on Wednesday, February 28, 2024 from 11:00 AM to 12:30 AM Eastern that presented the work conducted by NCHRP to revise the current AASHTO T 308 test procedure to be able to incorporate mixes with high recycled materials content. Presenters explored the effect of reducing the test temperature from 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit to 800 degrees Fahrenheit. Presenters also shared a new precision statement of the AASHTO procedure including recycle mixes.
This webinar was based on NCHRP Research Report 1060: Ignition Furnace Correction Factors: Identifying Influences and Minimizing Variability.
This webinar was sponsored by TRB’s National Cooperative Highway Research Program.
The slides are available. Please contact for a link to the recording. There may be a $90 fee.
