MIX DESIGN TECHNICIAN SHOULD ALWAYS REFERENCE AASHTO OR ASTM FOR THE COMPLETE PROCEDURES. Gradation (Sieve) Analysis (AASHTO T 27): When performing a sieve analysis, care should be taken not to overload each sieve. AASHTO T 27 Section 8.3 specifies weight limitations for each sieve (Table 3).
Job-Mix Formula (JMF) means the percentage passing on each designated sieve of the total mass of aggregate and the amount of asphalt cement as a percentage by mass of the mix that are based on specified mix design procedures that when mixed result in an HMA that is according to this specification.

It is proven that exists a clear tendency of optimal EAC value for asphalt or polymeric additives, as well as some tendencies for enzy-matic additives that need to be further developed, due to its dependence on the
The lower PCC is a stiffer â dryerâ mix with low slump (~1 in.) to support the weight of the upper PCC (Figures 5.2 and 5.4). The mix typically is stiff enough to support the weight of an average person without the person sinking (see footprints and member of paving crew walk- ing on the lower PCC in Figure 5.4) but still has enough moisture ...

The contractor may submit a new job mix formula on Form CEM-3511 with a new Form CEM-3512, “Contractor Hot Mix Asphalt Design Data,” or the contractor may adjust the job mix formula on Form CEM-3511 with allowable adjustments specified in Section 39-2.01A(4)(b), “Job Mix Formula Verification,” of the Standard Specifications.
4) Voids Filled with Asphalt (VFA) 5) Binder Content Before mix properties are discussed in detail, the Technician is required to understand that paving mix properties are most affected by volume and not weight; however, production and testing of HMA is by weight. An example of the difference between weight and volume of HMA is given in Figure 4-1.
Epoxy asphalt concrete (EAC) is made of epoxy asphalt binder and aggregate. Epoxy asphalt is a mix of epoxy resin and petroleum asphalt. Since its application on the Nanjing second Yangtze River Bridge in the year of 2000, EAC has been widely used in pavement construction on long-span steel bridges , , , .
The job mix formula (JMF) was a SuperPave, KY Class 2 asphalt surface that is commonly placed on non-primary routes and is intended for traffic up to 3 million ESALs. The design was optimized at 5.4 percent asphalt binder for 96 percent (4 percent air voids) design density at 75 gyrations with a Gmm of 2.521.
Asphalt Cement Content: The quantity of asphalt cement in the mix expressed as a percentage of total weight of Bituminous Mix. Bituminous Mix: Plant produced hot mixture of aggregate and asphalt cement. Bituminous Mix Design: The laboratory determination of the proportions of the Bituminous Mix
Soil-cement mixes were prepared with varying cement contents ranging from 4% to 6% by weight. The mix design requirement was to establish the cement content necessary to have a minimum unconfined compressive strength of 250 psi (1724 kpa) at 7 days. This paper presents the soil-cement mix design, field-laboratory procedure and results. The ...
