The results of a laboratory investigation of cold-mixed asphalt-emulsion-treated mixtures used for black bases are reported. The tensile properties for several mix variables and test temperatures were evaluated by the indirect tensile test. One type of asphalt emulsion and two types of aggregate were used. Two asphalt-emulsion contents and two initially added moisture contents were used. Specimens were cured at two curing conditions to represent early and long-term field curing. The relationships between load and horizontal deformation and between vertical and horizontal deformation were recorded during the test on X-Y recorders. The indirect tensile properties evaluated included indirect tensile strength, Poisson's ratio, indirect tensile stiffness, total strain at failure, and indirect tensile index.
