Ductility Testing Apparatus

Code: CEBTE013

As Per IS: 1028 -1958, ASTM: D113,IP 32, 55.

In flexible pavement construction, bitumen binders are used. It is important that bituminous material forms ductile thin film around the aggregates, which serves as a binder. The binder material not of sufficient ductility renders pervious pavement surface and leads to development of cracks. Therefore it is important to carry out the ductility tests on bituminous material. Ductility is defined as distance in cms. to which a standard briquette of bitumen can be stretched before the thread breaks. The briquette is stretched at a rate 0 0 of 50mm/minute +/-2.5 mm per minute at a temperature of 27 C+/-0.5 C.

Specifications: The apparatus consists of a Water bath with a thermostatic heater, and a circulating pump to maintain uniform water temperature. One half of the briquette moulds in fixed on a fixed plate in the water bath, the other half of the briquette mould is fixed to a carrier which slides over a rotating threaded shaft with a clutch. The motor and gears to rotate the shaft are housed in a cabinet fixed above the other and of the bath. A pointer fixed to the carrier moves over a scale graduated from 0-110 cm x 1mm fixed on the bath with "0"(Zero) of the scale towards the fixed plate slide. The rotating shaft has 2 speeds of travel for the bracket, 5cm/min. and 1cm/min. selected by a clutch. Water bath inside is aluminum, it is an insulated water bath. Water bath is provided with a drain. A heater with thermostatic control is fixed inside the water bath.

ASTM: D 1559-T-62

Originally developed by Bruce Marshall, a highway engineer in U.S.A later on standardized by ASTM. Generally the test is applicable to hot mix designs using bitumen and aggregates upto a maximum size of 25mm. In this method, the resistance to plastic deformation of cylindrical specimen of bituminous mixture is measured when the same is loaded at periphery at 5cm per min. This test procedure is used in designing and evaluating bituminous paving mixes. The test procedure is extensively used in routine test programmers for paving jobs. There are two major features of the Marshall method of designing mixes namely. a) densityvoids analysis, b) Stability-flow tests. The Marshall stability of mix is defined as a maximum load carried by a 0 compacted specimen at a standard test temperature of 60 C. The flow value is deformation the Marshall test specimen at under goes during the loading upto the maximum load, in 0.25 mm units. In this test and attempt is made to determine optimum binder content for the type of aggregate mix and traffic intensity.
