the superpave gyratory compactor is usually ___ in diameter but can go up to ___ nominal size.
the mechanical mixer prepares specimen at ___ binder viscosity.
for specimen prepartion, what is the time and temperature of short term oven aging for water aggregates at:
- water aggregate > 2%
- water aggregate < 2%
- 4hrs at 135°C
- 2hrs at 135°C
what are the specimen heights and masses for:

- moisture sensitivity
- mix characterization/analysis
- 115mm, 4700g
- 95mm, 3500g
what are the stages during sample compaction process?
- primary consolidation
- secondary consolidation
primary consolidation is the ___ stage of sample compaction process and requires ___ at Nini.
secondary consolidation is the ___ stage of sample compaction and requires %Gmm at ___.
- end of life performance
Nini, Ndes, and Nmax is based on ___.
Gmb (measured) is Gmb at ___.
surface irregularities cause the volume of the specimen to be ___ than the volume of the cyclinder.
Gmb (measured) is ___ than the estimated one.
how can one determine the actual mixture bulk specific gravity?
use a correction factor
what is the correction factor?
C = Gmb (meas.)/Gmb (est.)
how is the correction factor used for Gmb?
Gmb (N, corrected) = C*Gmb (N, est.)
