Addition of facility in Road Asset Management Group of CRRI for conducting Dynamic Modulus, Flow Number and Flow Time Tests (NCHRP Project 9-29)

Outputs:

  • Dynamic Modulus – Absolute value of Complex Modulus (dividing peak to peak stress by peak to peak strain subjected to sinusoidal loading)
  • Flow Number – Number of repeated load cycles (repeated compressive stress pulses) corresponding to the minimum accumulation rate of change of permanent axial strain
