Ductility of Bituminous Materials

Determines the ductility of a bituminous material by measuring the distancein which a sample will elongate before breaking when two ends of a briquetspecimen of the test material are pulled apart at a specified speed and temperature. Elastic Recovery is determined by pulling the briquet specimen to a specified distance at a specified speed and temperature. The briquet is then cut and the distance in which it takes for the two halves to reconnect is used to determine the elastic recovery of the test sample.
