Various Lab Test On Bitumen

Bitumen is a mixture of organic liquids that is black, highly viscous, sticky product used for paving roads, waterproofing products (used in sealing roofs). There are many tests which are conducted to check the quality of bitumen. Bitumen is very important component of many construction sites like roads, highways. 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.

Respected sir, It is really a fortunation to me to study all civil lab. test procedures in a single place-Thank you very much-Sincerely thanking yours –sankarE

rawat as says:

Sir,
All testing procedure on Bitumen are very useful.
Would you please mail me how to determine kinematic viscosity of a bitumen.

thanking you

With regards
rawatas.

KHAJA says:

SIR
ALL TESTING PROCEDURE ON SOIL ARE VERY USEFUL
WOULD YOU PLEASE MAIL ME TO ALL SOIL TESTS

THANKING YOU

alican says:

there are some tests that you did not write anything here. Could you please give some informations about “Loss on heating test , Spot test, Solubility test” ?

Kalpesh Patel says:

its very usefull information for all civil engineer.

Ganesh Jee says:

Sir i want to know about lab test method and simple equipments for absalute viscosity of bitumen.

zhang says:

SIR,I want to kown ho to do the spot test of bitument,Could sent a mail about this problem?
Thank you !

Sunil Kumar says:

Dear Sir,
I dont know how to conduct the following tests:
1. Viscosity Test of Bit
2. Loss on heat test of Bit.
3. Solubility Test of Bit.

If you kindly send me it is procedure with update testing Tamplate.

P.SOUNDAR says:

dear sir,
we are requiring the kinematic viscosity of bitumen vg 30 grade,so we need the calibration of viscometer and procedure.
thanks and regards
P.Soundar

ramakanth says:

hi
i had a doubt on the way the grading of bitumen takes place? can you fwd me to a link which specifies that..
thank you

gregorio c yee says:

dear sir, we are planning to conduct a seminar on different laboratory test on asphalting work, do have any training materials on this ? a powerpoint presentation would be of great help. thanks

Beatrice Kungu says:

Sir, send me the procedure for preparation of modified bitumen using waste plastic bags from the point plastic bags are collected, shredded to application on the road

RAMBABU GANJI says:

It is very usefull for civil engineers.

mubarikshah says:

pl.send me the procedure of kinematic viscosity of bitumen and detaled equipment pictures(photos)thanks.

sajan says:

sir, my specification section call for bitumen stripping test, i have performed the penetration test of bitumen, my questing we need to perfom the stripping test once we have the test result of penetration test?

Dhaval Patel says:

Cna you tall me what is the maining of 80-100(VG10) Bituman.?
i want to no what is 80-100?

Ravinder says:

Respected si, rvg30 bituminous test procedures & specified limits please send me details

Rakesh kumar jena says:

SIR I WANT TO KNOW ABOUT RING BALL apparatus TEST SO PLZ UPDATE THE TEST

wickramasinghe says:

sir,
could you send me testing required for quality assurance of concrete including aggregate, water etc. and soil (for consolidation, and borrow pit). also request the relevant apparatus required for abvoe tests.
thank you
