SUPERPAVE: THE SOFTWARE SYSTEM

SUPERPAVE software is aimed exclusively at asphalt mixture design. It does not contain asphalt binder tests and other asphalt binder research, but draws upon results of the asphalt mixture research program and combines it with portions of existing mix design technology. The result is a complete mixture design and analysis system intended for routine asphalt mixture design. This software applies to all phases of mixture design from selection of raw materials, aggregates and asphalt binder, through aggregate structure selection, asphalt volume selection, performance based testing and performance prediction. SUPERPAVE also applies to field verification of the mixture and quality control testing, the last phase of mix design which must not be overlooked.
