Requirements for Voids in Mineral Aggregate for Superpave Mixtures

The objective of this research is to develop recommended mix design criteria for VMA, VFA, or calculated binder film thickness, as appropriate, to ensure adequate HMA durability and resistance to permanent deformation and fatigue cracking for coarse and fine, dense graded mixes in the context of the Superpave mix design method.
