1.IntroductionThe penetration test is an empirical test used to measure the consistency of asphaltcement. Generally, the penetration of a bituminous substance may be defined asdistance in hundredths to which a standard needle penetrates the material under knownconditions of time, loading and temperature. This test is used for evaluating theconsistency of asphalt material before and after heating.2.ObjectiveTo measure the penetration value of asphalt, this is melted and cooled and kept at aroom temperature of 25ºC.3.Apparatusi.Penetration NeedleFigure 3.i: Penetration needleii.Water bathFigure 3.ii: Water bath

The sample container is keep completely cover with water at the25º 0.5ºC temperature.
The pointer of penetrometer is set to zero.v.The needle position is slowly lowering until its tip with the surface of the sample.vi.Needle holders are released for the specified period of time (5sec) and get the1/10mm reading. Ignore the result if the container moves.vii.Three determinations are makes at point of the surface of the sample not lessthan 10mm from the side of the container and not less than 10mm apart.
