This manual presents the procedures for an Asphalt-Aggregate Mixture Analysis System (AAMAS) developed under NCHRP Research Project 9-6(1). The procedures included in the manual are intended to be used for the design and evaluation of dense-graded hot-mixed asphalt concrete mixtures, based on performance-related criteria for high-volume roadways. This manual is the first of three documents, and constitutes the Procedural Manual for mixture design and AAMAS. This manual is divided into four parts. Part I (Selection of Mixture Components) presents the guidelines and criteria recommended for selecting the mixture components, Part II (Mixture Design) is the mixture design procedure, Part III (Mixture Analyses) discusses the test procedures that are required for AAMAS, and Part IV (Mixture Performance Evaluation) discusses the mechanistic-empirical procedures used to predict mixture behavior under traffic and environmental loads.
