Standard Practice for Superpave Volumetric Design for Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA)
|Publication Date:||1 January 2001|
This standard for mix design evaluation uses aggregate and mixture properties to produce a hot-mix asphalt (HMA) job-mix formula. The mix design is based on the volumetric properties of the HMA in term of the air voids, voids in the mineral aggregate (VMA), and voids filled with asphalt (VFA).
This standard may also be used to provide a preliminary selection of mix parameters as a starting point for mix analysis and performance prediction analyses which primarily use TP7 and TP9.
This standard may involve hazardous materials, operations, and equipment. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this procedure to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
