Asphalt / Bitumen
Force-Ductility-Tester IWS- FDT
for determining the visco-elastic properties of modified bitumen according to EN 13589
The possible application of different modified bitumen in road construction depends significantly on its rheological properties.
The force ductility testing procedure has proved its worth for the determination of the visco-elastic properties according EN 13589.
With the Force-Ductility-Tester IWS-FDT it is possible to conduct the force ductility testing procedure using the proven STRASSENTEST ductilometer type 410 (other ductilometers are possible on request)
The specially developed sensor block of the Force-Ductility-Tester IWS-FDT determines the force curve over the entire stretched length of the bitumen test specimen. By adding the recorded data of the feed rate it is possible to determine the deformation energy.
Up to 4 sensor blocks can be connected to the measurement module. The handling of the module is easy. The measurement results are recorded on the PC.
The printout of the measurement results summarises each test procedure according to EN 13703, including a graphical presentation of the important force curve.
A specially-developed calibration equipment allows the observation of the correct function of the Force-Ductility-Tester IWS-FDT in the laboratory.
