Aggregate Properties and the Performance of Superpave-Designed Hot Mix Asphalt

This report presents a critical review of the technical literature available since the conclusion of the Strategic Highway Research Program in 1993 on the impact of the aggregate properties specified by the Superpave mix design method on the performance of hot mix asphalt. The report will be of particular interest to materials engineers in state highway agencies, as well as to materials supplier and paving contractor personnel responsible for the production of aggregates and hot mix asphalt.
