Innovative performance-related asphalt mix design and construction

The current mix design method used in this region, in particular Singapore is classified as recipe specification where the asphalt mix is selected from a series of standard mixes derived based on the experience of traditional mixes of known composition which are used over long time periods. The mix design procedure does not include tests that relate to the performance of the asphalt under actual traffic loading. The objective of the paper is to review the current mix design methods and some of the latest performance-related tests used in asphalt mix design, in particular the practices in Singapore. The paper will illustrate an innovative mix design methodology developed by Hanson and case study carried out in Singapore.
