APTTS- Asphalt Pavement Thermal Testing System

Asphalt Pavement Thermal Testing System (APTTS) is a multipurpose low temperature testing machine that optimizes low temperature performance of asphaltic concrete mixtures.

  • Cool or heat an asphaltic concrete specimen at a constant rate or hold a constant temperature
  • Simulate actual field conditions with user programmable temperature profiles
  • Perform cyclic temperature testing
  • Minimises radial and/or transverse forces with dual clevis and rod end assemblies
  • AASHTO TP10
    • Thermal Stress Restrained Specimen Test (TSRST)
  • prEN 12697 46
    • Uniaxial Tension Stress Test (UTST)
    • Thermal Stress Restrained Specimen Test
    • Relaxation Test (RT)
    • Tensile Creep Test (TCT)
  • Determines the failure characteristics of Asphaltic Concrete (AC) specimens when cooled below freezing according to a user defined temperature profile.
  • Evaluates low temperature performance of field cores from existing roads.
  • Test laboratory compacted cores of new or experimental mixes.
  • Demonstrates the effects on low temperature performance of modified binders and from adding modified to standard binders
  • Optimise Low Temperature Performance of Asphaltic Concrete Mixtures
  • The APTTS software controls test, logs, data, plots the data points, and produces graphs
