SHRPA407 The Superpave Mix Design Manual for New Construction and Overlays Ronald J. Cominsky University of Texas at Austin With contributions by: Flexible Pavement Design Manual Revised: January 2018 Introduction 12 The Code's purpose is to protect the safety and general welfare of the people of the Superpave volumetric asphalt mixture design 1.
Superpave Overview nThe final product of the SHRP asphalt program area is Superpave. Superpave is an acronym which stands for: Superior Performing Asphalt Pavements 1. Major Steps in Superpave nSuperpave mix design is volumetrically Urban Road Repair Superpave Mix Design, DAngelo 105 pavements in 14 different states. Rut depth measurements were taken, mix design information, SUPERPAVE This workshop is intended to demonstrate the Superpave asphalt mixture design system developed by the Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP), along with the application of certain innovative concepts in field management of asphalt mixes.
The Superpave Mix Design manual presents the concepts and criteria involved with the Superpave asphalt mix design system. The Superpave aggregate tests and criteria are described, including aggregate consensus and source properties, the aggregate gradation control Superpave Mix Design Manual March 29, 2005 Superpave Mix Design Manual Page 1 SUPERPAVE MIX DESIGN MANUAL I.
SCOPE This manual describes the method for the design of SUPERPAVE Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) mixtures. This method outlines a complete procedure for the 12. 5 mm SUPERPAVE This surface mix has a high stability designed for use on roadways with: The asphalt mixtures referred to in this manual are PENNDOT Job Mix Designs which are readily characteristics of good asphalt pavements. PENNDOTs Bulletin 27 (Publication 27) provides the specications for HMA mix design and procedures The Superpave mix design method was designed to replace the Hveem and Marshall methods.
The volumetric analysis common to the Hveem and Marshall methods provides the basis for the Superpave mix design method.
