The "nuclear" asphalt content gage was used with bituminous mixes containing slag aggregates to assess its applicability as a rapid analysis tool for these types of mixes. It was found to work as well, or better, than the standard extraction technique. It was also found to have additional advantages over the extraction technique since it is about an order to magnitude faster, requires no solvent and involves no decisions on the part of the user.
