Alaska Test Methods Manual

This manual provides a compilation of approved Test Methods, Forms and Standard Practices to be used to test materials on Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities (DOT&PF) projects. 

Most of these testing procedures follow two nationally recognized standards; American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), and the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO).  Modifications to these standards are in recognition of the necessity of adjusting test requirements to meet local demands or naturally occurring materials.

Submit suggested additions, deletions or revisions to these procedures to Dan Gettman, WAQTC Coordinator or the Statewide Construction Standards Engineer.
