Background of Superpave Asphalt Mixture Design and Analysis
Primary Topic: Materials-Asphalt
Description: This manual represents on of the first formal training documents that embodied the complete series of SUPERPAVE asphalt mixture design and analysis test equipment and procedures. These tests and procedures represent the results of the SHRP 5-year research effort to investigate and improve asphalt cement technology. This manual was developed under the FHWA's National Asphalt Training Center. Students attending the center utilized this manual to obtain a better understanding of the underlying theory behind asphalt mixture design and analysis, as well as how to perform each of the new procedures.
