The Computer Aided Test Analysis for Civil Engineering (CATACE) is made based on International standards, regulations and specifications. It includes test analysis for aggregates, bitumen, soil, asphalt concrete and its mixtures. It includes the technical requirements for nuclear gauge, selection parameter for surface dressing, blending for prime coat and tack coat. It provides the unit conversion between American to international system. It provided over 40 kinds of test analysis, and it will be increase working efficiency for the Material Testing Engineer who is working oversea project and follows International Standards. The paper introduces the functions and application of the program.
