Development of Quality Control Procedures for Hot-Mix Asphalt

Acceptance specifications for hot-mix asphalt materials and construction shifted away from a ‘materials and methods’ approach to a statistically-based end-result specification in the 1980’s. This required a set of specifications which defined the desired product (e.g. hot-mix asphalt

considered important parameters in hot mix asphalt (HMA) mix design. It is believed that a minimum VMA requirement is necessary to ensure that the HMA mix is not deficient in asphalt cement (so the mix is durable), and/or in VTM (to prevent flushing and/or rutting). Current VMA requirements are based largely upon the work done during 1950 to 1960.

When VMA is too low, there is not enough room in the mixture to add sufficient asphalt binder to adequately coat the individual aggregate particles. Also, mixes with a low VMA are more sensitive to small changes in asphalt binder content. Excessive VMA will cause an unacceptably low mixture stability (Roberts et al., 1996 [1]). Generally, a

The purpose of requiring a gradation on field samples is to help ensure that the asphalt plant used the same aggregates as reported on the asphalt mix design, in the same proportions. The gradation of all of the aggregates mixed together, plus the design binder content is called the job mix formula (JMF).
