HOT MIX ASPHALT PAVEMENT DESIGN GUIDE

blacktop or Superpave. Hot mix asphalt is composed of aggregate bound together into a solid mass by asphalt cement. The aggregates total ninety-three (93) to ninety-seven (97) percent by weight of the total mixture and are mixed with three (3) to seven (7) percent asphalt cement. It is manufactured in a central mixing plant where the asphalt and aggregates are heated, properly proportioned,and ...

What is Superpave? All You Need to Know - Gilson Co.

Superpave Mix Design. Superpave is an asphalt mix design method that has its roots in a report released back in 1984 by the Transportation Research Board (TRB), America's Highways, Accelerating the Search for Innovation. The report outlined the need for increased state and federal funds to develop badly needed research for better and longer-lasting highways. In response, Congress authorized ...

HMA Mix Design Fundamentals – Pavement Interactive

Mix design, and specifically Superpave mix design, is volumetric in nature. That is, it seeks to combine aggregate and asphalt on a volume basis (as opposed to a weight basis). Volume measurements are usually made indirectly by determining a material’s weight and specific gravity and then calculating its volume. Therefore, mix design involves several different void and specific gravity ...
