Publication Details

Methodology for Determining Compaction Temperatures for Modified Asphalt Binders Research/Reference: useful for researchers doing further work in the pavement area as well as those developing improved testing and design procedures. Includes documents of historical value.

Primary Topic: Materials-Asphalt

Description: This report documents a Federal Highway Administration research study that was performed to assist asphalt mixture technologists in choosing an appropriate laboratory compaction temperature for asphalt mixture design. This temperature is important because it can affect both the optimum asphalt binder content and the mechanical properties of an asphalt mixture.
