The low temperature performance of HMA can be determined easily using 150 mm SGC produced specimen (specimen with similar size used indirect tensile test and with a 60 mm hole at the middle). ACCD test is similar to TSRST (Thermal Stress Restrained Specimen Test), but much simpler and faster. The results are highly reproducible. The graph shows the test results of a mix, one performed with 10C/hr cooling rate and the other with 24 hour physical hardening at -15C.
