HOT MIX ASPHALT PAVEMENT DESIGN GUIDE
A modern hot mix asphalt facility provides high production, good quality mixes (including recycled asphalt pavement if desired) while meeting stringent air quality standards. 3. ASPHALT PAVING MIXTURES. The pavement design requires the proper hot mix asphalt paving mixtures for the base and surface pavements.
Introduction to Asphalt Pavement Design and Specifications
Designer’s Role Adequate Structural Design: Asphalt/aggregate thickness adequate for: •Soil type and drainage •expected loads, construction and long term •Climate conditions Specifying appropriate combination of mix types, number of layers and layer thicknesses for: •loads and speeds •to provide smoothness and •economy.
Asphalt Pavement Thickness and Mix Design - Asphalt ...
Mix and Thickness Design. The maximum unit weight is also sometimes called the “solid density”. This value is based on the asphalt mixture’s maximum specific gravity – also known as the Rice value or G mm in Superpave. The maximum unit weight is determined by multiplying the Rice value by 62.4 pounds per cubic foot (PCF).

SECTION 401 - PLANT PRODUCTION
Determine plant lots and sublots on a daily basis in accordance with MP 96-02. A plant lot is defined as the quantity in metric tons of HMA produced per plant for each mix design in one day. When different mix designs are produced on the same day, then each mix design represents a separate plant lot.
