The GCTS Beam Flexural Fatigue System (BFFS-P) provides a complete solution for Beam Flexural Fatigue tests. A servocontrolled, pneumatic load frame is used to hold HMA beam specimens in four places and apply up to 5 kN loads at up to 10 Hz as required by ASTM and AASHTO testing standards.
A fiberglass environmental chamber is used to keep the temperature of the specimen constant throughout the test. The operator can program the chamber to hold at any temperature between 5C and 54C. The chamber is insulated to ensure that the temperature does not change dramatically in the case of a power outage. The environmental chamber is set atop an included table for ease of use.
