Many tests are done to ensure the quality of bitumen. Some of these are given below :-

1. Bitumen Content
2. Ductility Of Bitumen
3. Penetration of Bitumen
4. Specific Gravity of Bitumen
5. Softening Point Of Bitumen
6. Flash And Fire Point Of Bitumen
7. The Marshall Stability of Bituminous Mixture

Just click on the names of the tests above to know the entire procedure of how we perform these tests.
