WSDOT Materials Manual M 46-01.10 Page iii January 2012 
The 2012 edition of the
 Materials Manual 
has been revised. It continues to use AASHTO, ASTM,WAQTC, and WSDOT test methods. The strategic directions for the Materials Laboratory is tocontinue to expand the use of AASHTO and ASTM standards whenever possible.The manual has retained its dual unit format. However, English units predominate with metric units in parenthesis. WSDOT is using English units.The manual reects the Quality System concerns of an AASHTO accredited organization. The manualis organized by numerical test order. It also features two contents and an index.The manual reects a continuing policy of adopting “consensus” standards wherever practical.Adoption of these, in the form of AASHTO, ASTM, WAQTC, or other nationally recognizedstandards eliminates much of the previous text, which merely recopied the national documents.By adopting these standards, we provide a common standard that can be used by neighboring statesand other laboratories or organizations. Contractors who work in more than one state also benet byhaving to conform with fewer unique tests.The concept of Field Operating Procedures (FOP) is continued to support the work of MaterialsTesters at the Field or Project level. Full procedures are provided when WSDOT Test Methods apply,or when a consensus standard (AASHTO, ASTM, or WAQTC) has been adapted to an FOP. The FOP provides the essential performance elements for the eld technician.When not specied by the test procedure, test reports will be generated through the Materials TestingSystem (MATS) or by the use of forms approved by the State Materials Engineer.The WSDOT Materials Laboratory is responsible for establishing and managing all test procedures.For technical information or suggested changes to test methods or procedures, contact the WSDOT Materials Laboratory Quality Systems Manager through the departmental mail system at MS 47365; by mail at PO Box 47365, Olympia, WA 98504-7365; by telephone at 360-709-5412; or by fax at360-709-5588, physically located at 1655 South Second Avenue, Tumwater, WA 98512. Please usethis physical address for all communications other than US Postal Service mail.This manual is updated as needed.
