  1. The tensile strength ratio (TSR) in percentage for this asphalt mixture is 1.3533.
    Given that,
    Tensile strength of the three conditioned samples is 176 psi, 180 psi, and 184 psi, respectively.
    Tensile strength of the three unconditioned samples is 136 psi, 133 psi, and 130 psi, respectively.
    To find :  Tensile strength ratio (TSR) in percentage for asphalt mixture
    Tensile Strength Ratio =
    Tensile Strength Ratio of Conditioned Samples/Tensile Strength Ratio of UnConditioned Samples
    Average Tensile Strength
    Conditioned Samples- (180+184+176) /3
                                       =180 psi
    Unconditioned Samples – (130+ 133 + 136)/3
                                             =133 psi
    Tensile Strength Ratio=180/133
                                        =1.3533
    Hence, The tensile strength ratio (TSR) in percentage for this asphalt mixture is 1.3533
