Evaluating The Field Performance of Asphalt Mixtures in ...

Highway engineers have been looking for a simple, inexpensive, and accurate performance test for hot-mix asphalt (HMA) since HMA first came into use in the late 19th century. One of the first tests was the Hubbard-Field method, developed in the 1920s, which measured the strength of the asphalt by using a punching shear load to test for failure.
