Identifying Influences on and Minimizing the Variability of Ignition Furnace Correction Factors

The objectives of this research are to (1) determine the variability of asphalt and aggregate correction factors for asphalt mixes containing significant asphalt recycled materials compared to those with virgin binder and aggregate only; (2) further evaluate the effect of reducing the test temperature of AASHTO T 308 method to 800°F; and (3) conduct an interlaboratory study with different mixes to establish a new precision statement for the test procedure.
