How to Design Bituminous Mixes: Steps and Methods [with

The aggregates and bitumen are separately heated to a temperature of 154 to 160°C and 175 to 190°C, respectively. The quantity of bitumen by weight of the mix is measured and poured into the heated aggregate. The mix is uniformly blended and poured into a standard cylindrical mould (102 mm diameter and 64 mm depth) heated to 93-149°C.

History of asphalt mix design in North America, Part 1

Hveem’s mix design philosophy is that sufficient asphalt binder is needed to satisfy aggregate absorption and to have a minimum film thickness on the surface of the aggregates. In order to carry load, the aggregates had to have a sliding resistance (measured by the Hveem stabilometer) and a minimum tensile strength to resist turning movement (measured by the cohesiometer).

User Guide for the Design of Hot Mix Asphalt

The Interim Guidelines for the Design of Hot Mix Asphalt in South Africa (IGHMA) was prepared in 2001 as part of the Hot Mix Asphalt Design Project launched in 1998 by SANRAL (South African National Road Agency Ltd), CSIR Transportek and Sabita (Southern African Bitumen Association). The aim was to develop a new HMA design method for South Africa.

The need for rigorous mix design methods and structural design procedures led South Africa to develop guidelines and manuals for granular emulsion mixes (GEMS) , emulsion-treated bases (ETBs) , and foamed bitumen-treated materials . A generic term for the two bitumen binders was created under the title of bitumen stabilised materials (BSMs).
