The Fundamentals of Asphalt Mix

The Fundamentals of Asphalt Mix

Asphalt paving mix design requires a clear understanding of design standards and specification requirements. Design also demands close attention to the details of testing procedures to ensure an economical blend and gradation of aggregates. Durable asphalt mixes must provide for stability, sufficient voids and workability to permit efficient construction.

This course provides an overview of asphalt mix design and includes the latest design methods from America and Australia. The methods will include Austroads Guide to Pavement Technology and SHRP Superpave Mix Design.

This course also includes an overview of the specification for dense graded, stone mastic and fine graded asphalt paving mixtures NZTA M/10.

This will assist engineers and supervisors in their understanding of the design process and specifications.

Who should attend

Engineers and supervisors from consulting firms, local authorities and technical staff from contracting firms who are involved in the decision making process for mix types vs location and/or laboratory technicians
