BBR - Bending Beam Rheometer
- ASTM D6648
- AASHTO T313
- EN 14771
Bending Beam Rheometer is engineered to perform flexural tests on asphalt binder and similar specimens. These tests consist of a constant force being applied to a specimen in a chilled bath in order to derive specific rates of deformation at various temperatures.
