Servo-Pneumatic Universal Testing Machine

CRT-UTM-NU

Rapid determination of modulus, permanent deformation and fatigue of


bituminous mixtures using cylindrical specimens that are cored from the
highway or prepared in the laboratory

1
BRIEF INTRODUCTION

This machine is a development of the NAT which was developed by Keith Cooper and Professor Steven
Brown at the University of Nottingham. The use of a high precision servo-pneumatic valve in conjunction
with a low-friction actuator and sophisticated data acquisition and control, results in a performance that is
equal to many servo-hydraulic systems.

Accurate, digitally generated waveforms are applied by the actuator producing repeatable stress variations
in test specimens that are simulative of those in a road pavement due to moving traffic. The actuator is
double-acting allowing both compressive and tensile forces to be applied. A triaxial cell system is available
for the measurement of the resilient modulus of unbound materials.
