RSAT asphalt ravelling tester

Ravelling is an important asphalt / pavement degradation process that is intensively being researched by road construction companies and government bodies. 

RSAT (Rotating Surface Abrasion Test) is one of the methods selected for the DRaT project. DRaT is an acronym for Development of Ravelling Test and part of a CEDR Transnational Road Research Programme.

Other methods are DSD (Darmstadt Scuffing Device), TRD (Triboroute Device), ARTe (Aachener Ravelling Tester) and SR-ITD (Skid Resistance & Smart Ravelling - Interface Testing Device.
