New AI test frame means new tests

New AI test frame means new testsThe Asphalt Institute laboratory received their Cox and Sons 25,000-lb universal test frame recently.

This new frame and control system expands AI’s testing capabilities to include the new Disk-Shaped compact Tension test DC(t), ASTM D7313. This new test measures the fracture energy of a mixture sample as developed at the University of Illinois-Champaign.

The test frame is a state of the art unit that features special controls for running multiple tests from 80°c to -40°c.
