An Overview of the Superpave System

Looking for a concise overview of the Superpave system? Then you'll want to get a copy of FHWA's new brochure, The Superpave System: New Tools for Designing and Building More Durable Asphalt Pavements.

The eight-page brochure briefly describes each component of the Superpave system, including the binder specification, the mix design system, and the performance prediction models. It also touches on the implementation process and timeline. For those wanting more detailed information, it includes a listing of Superpave publications and information sources.

To request a copy of the brochure (publication number FHWA-SA-96-010), contact FHWA's Research and Technology Reports Center (telephone 301-577-0906; fax: 301-577-1421).
