This paper is an original investigational sequel to the review of the literature published in the September 1951 issue of the Transactions. The Author's concept of Softening Point Number as a measure of asphaltic bitumen quality is the subject of a rigorous experimental study from a number of angles of durability. Softening Point Number is a rheological characterization index read directly from a chart and relating standard penetration at 77F with softening point.
