Long Term Pavement Performance Project Laboratory Materials Testing And Handling Guide

Research/Reference: useful for researchers doing further work in the pavement area as well as those developing improved testing and design procedures. Includes documents of historical value.

Primary Topic: Pavement Maintenance

Description: The Long Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) Laboratory Material Testing Guide was originally prepared for laboratory material handling and testing of material specimens and samples of asphalt materials, portland cement concrete, aggregates, and soils under the supervision of the Strategic Highway Research Program. This version of the Guide has been updated to provide a historical reference document for analysts of the LTPP data. It provides the basis for the quality control program used in performing the laboratory testing, the protocols used in testing the material samples, and the guidelines for handling these samples in the laboratory. Additionally, this document provides the guidelines used for identifying the pavement structure based on the material properties of the sampled layers.
