Standard Test Method for
Effect of Moisture on Asphalt Concrete Paving Mixtures1
This standard is issued under the fixed designation D 4867/D 4867M; the number immediately following the designation indicates the
year of original adoption or, in the case of revision, the year of the last revision. A number in parentheses indicates the year of last
reapproval. A superscript epsilon (e) indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval.
1.1 This test method covers procedures for preparing and
testing asphalt concrete specimens for the purpose of measuring the effect of water on the tensile strength of the paving
mixture. This test method is applicable to dense mixtures such
as those appearing in the Table for Composition of Bituminous
Paving Mixtures in Specification D 3515. This test method can
be used to evaluate the effect of moisture with or without
antistripping additives including liquids and pulverulent solids
such as hydrated lime or portland cement.
1.2 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units
in parentheses shall be regarded separately as standard. The
values in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore,
each system must be used independently of the other, without
combining values in any way.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the
safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the
responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
