This European Standard specifies test methods for determining the maximum density of a bituminous mixture (voidless mass). It specifies a volumetric procedure, a hydrostatic procedure and a mathematical procedure.
The test methods described are intended for use with loose bituminous mixtures containing paving grade bitumens, modified binders or other bituminous binders used for hot mix asphalt. The tests are suitable for both fresh or aged bituminous mixtures.
NOTE 1 Samples can be supplied as loose mixture or as compacted mixture.
NOTE 2 General guidance on selection of a test procedure to determine the maximum density of a bituminous mixture is given in annex A.
