Test Methods

To accompany the HBM standard, there are complementary testing standards:

BS EN 13286. Unbound and hydraulically bound mixtures

  • Part 1: Test methods for laboratory reference density and water content – Introduction, general requirements and sampling
  • Part 2: Test methods for the determination of the laboratory reference density and water content – Proctor compaction
  • Part 3: Test methods for laboratory reference density and water content – Vibrocompression with controlled parameters
  • Part 4: Test methods for laboratory reference density and water content – Vibrating hammer
  • Part 5: Test methods for laboratory reference density and water content – Vibrating table
  • Part 40: Test method for determination of the direct tensile strength of hydraulically bound mixtures.
  • Part 41: Test method for determination of the compressive strength of hydraulically bound mixtures.
  • Part 42: Test method for the determination of the indirect tensile strength of hydraulically bound mixtures.
  • Part 43: Test methods for the determination of the modulus of elasticity of hydraulically bound mixtures.
  • Part 44: Test method for the determination of the alpha coefficient of vitrified blast furnace slag.
  • Part 45: Test methods for the determination of the workability period of hydraulically bound mixtures.
  • Part 46: Test method for the determination of the moisture condition value.
  • Part 47: Test method for the determination of California Bearing Ratio, immediate bearing index and linear swelling.
  • Part 48: Test method for the determination of the degree of pulverization.
  • Part 49: Accelerated swelling test for soil treated by lime and/or hydraulic binder.
  • Part 50: Method for the manufacture of test specimens of hydraulically bound mixtures using Proctor equipment or vibrating table compaction.
  • Part 51: Method for the manufacture of test specimens of hydraulically bound mixtures using vibrating hammer compaction.
  • Part 52: Method for the manufacture of test specimens of hydraulically bound mixtures using vibrocompression.
  • Part 53: Method for the manufacture of test specimens of hydraulically bound mixtures using axial compression.

As with EN14227, the test method standards can be obtained as BSENs from the BRITISH STANDARDS INSTITUTION, Chiswick, London.

For other tests:
