Performance Tests for Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) Including Fundamental and Empirical Procedures

Editor(s): Louay N. Mohammad

Thirteen peer-reviewed papers provide the latest international and state agency research on the use of performance tests for HMA mixture design and field control.

The papers are arranged in four groups designed to aid the reader in locating papers of interest and to compare and contrast the range of work and opinions presented:

Mixture Simulative Performance Tests—relates to the practical use of some simulative loaded-wheel testers used in identifying rut-prone HMA mixtures.

Mechanistic Test for Quality Control—includes papers in that the mechanistic tests were used in field Quality Control of HMA mixtures.

Mechanistic Tests for Mixture Design—contains several papers relating to the need for mechanistic tests in HMA mixture design.

Application of New Mechanistic Test Methods in HMA Mixture Performance Evaluation—focuses on the use of newly developed mechanistic test methods, which have potentials to be used in HMA mixture performance evaluation.
