Indirect Tension & Creep Compliance Tests


The GCTS Indirect Tension Test Module allows the user to conduct indirect tension tests as well as creep compliance tests to aid in the characterization of Hot Mix Asphalt. This module must be used with a GCTS testing system with an axial actuator, such as the GCTS Asphalt Testing System to perform the tests. This system can be used with the GCTS Asphalt Testing System to perform tests at various temperatures. 

 

The GCTS Indirect Tension Test module conforms to AASHTO Standard T 322.

The tensile strength of HMA is a major predictor of the service life of pavement. The cracking potential of the HMA is directly related to its tensile strength. The GCTS Indirect Tension Test Module allows the user to conduct both indirect tension tests and creep compliance tests to help determine the service life of pavement.
