Superpave Mix Design - Pavement Interactive
The Superpave system ties asphalt binder and aggregate selection into the mix design process, and considers traffic and climate as well. The compaction devices from the Hveem and Marshall procedures have been replaced by a gyratory compactor and the compaction effort in mix design is tied to expected traffic.
PDF Superpave Volumetric Mix Design - Asphalt Pavement
1.1. This specification for Superpave volumetric mix design uses aggregate and mixture properties to produce a hot mix asphalt (HMA) job-mix formula. 1.2. This standard specifies minimum quality requirements for binder, aggregate, and HMA asphalt materials for Superpave volumetric mix designs. 1.3.
Asphalt Pavement Thickness and Mix Design - Asphalt ...
Mix temperature is dependent on the grade of asphalt used in the mix. Less viscous the asphalt requires lower the temperatures, while more viscous asphalt requires higher temperatures.At the start of a mix design project, target temperatures are specified for proper mixing and compaction.
PDF Superpave Mixture Design Guide
A Superpave mix design includes several processes and decision points. First, design compaction levels are established and mate-rials are selected and characterized. Then, mixture samples are prepared and laborato-ry test results are compared to design crite-ria. However, the existing Superpave design system does not properly address perform-

Flexible Perpetual Design & Analysis Software. 1 HOT MIX ASPHALT WHAT IS HOT MIX ASPHALT? Hot mix asphalt may be referred to by several names. In different sections of the state it may also be referred to as bituminous concrete,hot plant mix,asphalt concrete, blacktop or Superpave. Hot mix asphalt is composed of aggregate bound together
PDF Basic Asphalt Materials Mixture Design and Testing
Mix Design Fundamentals HMA consists of two basic ingredients: aggregate and asphalt binder. HMA mix design is the process of determining what aggregate to use, what asphalt binder to use and what the optimum combination of these two ingredients ought to be. There are several different methods used to go

HOT-MIX ASPHALT (HMA) WHAT IS HMA? Hot-mix asphalt (HMA) may be referred to by several names. In different sections of the state it may also be referred to as bituminous concrete, hot plant mix, asphalt concrete, blacktop or SUPERPAVE. HMA is composed of aggregate bound together into a solid mass by asphalt cement. The aggregates total
