Standard Method of Test for
Resistance of Compacted Hot Mix Asphalt
(HMA) to Moisture-Induced Damage
AASHTO Designation: T 283-07
1.1.This method covers preparation of specimens and the measurement of the change of diametral tensile strength resulting from the effects of water saturation and accelerated water conditioning, with a freeze-thaw cycle, of compacted HMA.
The results may be used to predict long-term stripping susceptibility of the HMA and evaluate liquid anti-stripping additives that are added to the asphalt binder or pulverulent solids, such as hydrated lime or portland cement, which are added to the mineral aggregate.
1.2.The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.
1.3.This standard may involve hazardous materials, operations, and equipment.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, ifany, 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.
