Support for Balanced Asphalt Mixture Design Specification Development in Missouri

The project is being developed to mix performance tests to supplement volumetric mix design and the PG binder specification, and there is currently a national movement to rectify that shortcoming. Advances in fundamental and torture-type asphalt mixture tests, particularly those related to crack control, have become more prevalent in the past decade. However, states are just now beginning to implement these new tests into specifications for asphalt mixture design, control, and acceptance. The first step in this path usually involves the introduction of tests for the mixture design stage.
