Performance Test Resources

Each test is summarized in a one-page table format that includes a brief description of the test procedure, test results, equipment and cost, specimen fabrication, testing time, data analysis complexity, test variability, field validation, and overall practicality for mix design and quality assurance (QA). In addition, key references are provided for each test for readers interested in seeking further information. Information categories based on subjective assessment include data analysis complexity, test variability, overall practicality for mix design and QA, and field validation.
