  • HMA - Back to Basics:

    • Plant and Field Sampling (PTM 746)

    • T-209 , T-312 , T-166

  • Equipment

    • 8” / 12” sieves

      • AASHTO T-30 – Max of 200g on each sieve smaller than the No. 4


Aashto t 209
AASHTO T-209

  • Removed air trapped in the sample - under pressure (27.5 ±2.5 mm Hg) and maintain for 15±2 min

  • Measure water temp and IF different from (77 ±2°F) use adjustment in Section 8.1


Aashto t 312
AASHTO – T-312

  • Place compaction Mold and Base Plate in an oven at the required compaction temp. for a minimum of 30 mins. prior to the estimated beginning of compaction.

  • Place the mixture in the mold in one lift.

  • Before reusing the Mold, place it in the oven for at least 5 mins.


Ptm 715 aashto t 166
PTM 715 / AASHTO T-166

  • T-166 (Method A)

    • Immerse individual specimen for 4±1min.and record the immersed mass

    • Remove specimen from the bath, damp-dry specimen by blotting with damp towel as quickly as possible (not to exceed 5 s) and determine surface-dry mass


Ptm 746 hauling unit
PTM -746 (Hauling unit)

  • EQUIPMENT:

    • A flat bottom, high sided scoop

    • Putty knife for scraping the INSIDE of the scoop

  • Starting low on the pile and extending upward, sample the mixture by creating an approximate 2’ long and 3” to 4” deep vertical furrow.


Ptm 746 hauling unit con t
PTM -746 (Hauling unit con’t)

If the mixture is sampled from at least two places in the truck, place the material removed in this manner on a mixing board, thoroughly mix, Form into a flat pile and quarter to provide a representative sample of the required size. Scrape the INSIDE of the scoop at eachtransfer point to incorporate any fines sticking to the inside of the scoop.

AASHTO R-47

Reducing Samples of HMA to Testing Size



Hma issues on data input
HMA Issues on Data Input

  • Wrong #200 C/F used when calculating gradation. When corrected – several gradations were out of Spec.

  • Gradation on lower screen showed morematerial passing than previous screen

  • Incorrect tolerance band used for gradations – correct band showed Six sieves with Deviations


Hma issues on data input1
HMA Issues on Data Input

  • Volumeter calibration changed Dry weight by 900g however the Volume remained the same?

  • Gmb plugs indicated the Dry specimen weight was heavier than the SSD resulting in negative absorption – if you reverse the weights the Va failed

  • Dry and SSD weights were exactly the same – no absorption? Field cores too!


Hma issues on data input2
HMA Issues on Data Input

  • Wrong Gmm used for density cores

    • 2.435 was used for 95.4% density.

    • Actual was 2.534 for 91.7% (Failure)

  • 2 Gmb plugs had same weight

    • 1 plug absorbed 7g

    • 1 plug absorbed 23g

    • SAME Va % ???


Hma issues on data input3
HMA Issues on Data Input

  • Gmb plug heights outside of the 110mm-120mm range yet still showed passing Va%

  • Gmb plugs always had 5g – 6g H2O absorption- no matter the plug weight or height variances
