Balanced Mix Design — a move forward for asphalt ...

2021-9-17  There are two main approaches to designing asphalt mixtures in the US: 1. Volumetric Design with Performance Verification . This involves a Superpave volumetric (only) mix design where samples are made and optimized based on the volume of aggregate, asphalt binder and air. If the mixture doesn’t pass volumetric limits, the mix design process ...

Influence of Balanced Mix Design on Asphalt Mixture ...

Therefore, it is time to start looking towards the ultimate goal of Superpave mixture design by moving into a balanced mix design (BMD). Four major approaches are available for BMD (AASHTO PP 105). Each of the approaches provides different levels of freedom and flexibility compared to the traditional volumetric-based mixture design.
