The Virginia Department of Transportation (DOT) has taken initiatives to implement the Balanced Mix Design (BMD) method to assure the long-term service life of its pavement network from a mixture quality standpoint. As part of this initiative, the cracking tolerance (CT) index obtained from the indirect tensile (IDT) test at intermediate temperature in accordance with ASTM D8225-19 was selected for evaluating the cracking potential of dense-graded surface asphalt mixtures. This prompted the need to generate the precision estimates (repeatability and reproducibility) for the test method for proper implementation during quality measurement practices. Thus, this interlaboratory study was undertaken to determine the precision estimates of the CT index calculated from the IDT test and to develop the associated precision statements. In addition, fracture strain tolerance (FST) and indirect tensile strength were included. Two asphalt mixes with significantly different CT index values were designed for the evaluation. Forty-six pairs of five replicate sets of compacted specimens (one set for each mix) were sent to 41 participating laboratories to be tested at 25°C. The test results were checked for data quality. The effects of loading rate and manufacturers on the indices were also evaluated. The test results indicated that one third of the sets were not tested in full accordance with the ASTM standard, indicating a need for training. The results also indicated that the specified loading rate of 50 ± 2 mm/min in ASTM D8225-19 for the IDT test may need revision. Finally, the precision estimates and associated statements for the three indices were presented.
