Implementation of the Asphalt Mixture Performance Tester (AMPT) for Superpave Validation

This pooled fund study is open to any highway agency interested in using simple performance tests (SPT) to aid in material characterization for design and analysis of flexible pavements. The objectives of this pooled fund study are to: (i) nationally procure the SPT for highway agencies interested in obtaining and using the SPT to characterize asphalt mixtures designed using Superpave technology; (ii) provide support in training technicians to use the SPT to perform the proposed standard practices for measuring dynamic modulus, flow number and flow time of asphalt mixtures compacted using the Superpave Gyratory Compactor (SGC); and (iii) evaluate the nation-wide implementation and use of the SPT for assessing performance of asphalt mixtures over a wide range of climatic conditions, materials, and structures.
