The Materials Testing Manual 4th edition, amendment 3 has recently been released to the public. This Materials Testing Manual (MTM) provides methods for sampling and testing of soils, aggregates, rocks, bituminous materials, asphalt, concrete and pavements.

The Materials Testing Manual (MTM) is published to assist the Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) in the design, construction and maintenance of the state road network. The 4th Edition of the MTM was published in 2014 and is available in electronic form only. To reduce costs for industry, the manual contains a “Table of Equivalencies” so that testing laboratories will no longer need to obtain separate NATA accreditations for identical test methods.
