AMPTQube, based on the revolutionary EmS Electro-mechanical Servoactuated technology is suitable for QC / QA tests. AMPTQube grants a level of testing accuracy, quality, performance and range normally only achievable from complex and expensive machines.
AMPTQube has been designed to be a fast and reliable method of testing the NCHRP Projects 9-19 and 9-29, AASHTO T378 / TP79 Dynamic Moduls, Flow and Flow Time with ease.
In addition AMPTQube can also perform Uniaxial Fatigue / SVECD, Overlay Test, Semi-Circular Bend, Indirect Tensile Dynamic Modulus, iRLPD, Small Diameter Dynamic Modulus, tests with the addition of optional hardware accessories.
The Asphalt Mixture Performance Tester - AMPT Qube can be used as part of your Superpave performance based testing program.
AMPTQube includes, as standard, the following testing (compression platens) which, however, has been completed with the transducer kit accessory.
Dynamic Modulus E to AASHTO T378 / TP79 and NCHRP 9-29
A performance related property, for asphalt mixture evaluation and charachterising the stiffness of HMA. It is an important input parameter for AASHTO "Mechanistic-Empirical Pavement Design Guide".
- Creates master curves for structural design
- Assess modified binders and local materials
- Forensisc analysis of pavement failure
Flow number to AASHTO TPXX and NCHRC 9-29
HMA to permanent deformation.
- Repeated load creep tests
- Evaluate rutting
- Accurate simulation of actual loading
Flow time to NCHRP 9-29
Flow time is a quick and simple measurement of the resistance of HMA to permanent deformation.
- Static creep tests
- Measure permanent deformation for rutting evaluation
