HMA Mix Design Fundamentals - Pavement Interactive

HMA Weight-Volume Terms and Relationships. Mix design, and specifically Superpave mix design, is volumetric in nature. That is, it seeks to combine aggregate and asphalt on a volume basis (as opposed to a weight basis). Volume measurements are usually made indirectly by determining a material’s weight and specific gravity and then calculating ...
