Standard Practice for
Superpave Volumetric Design
for Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA)
AASHTO Designation: R 35-04
1.1.This standard for mix design evaluation uses aggregate and mixture properties to produce a hot mix asphalt (HMA) job-mix formula.
The mix design is based on the volumetric properties of the HMA in terms of the air voids, voids in the mineral aggregate (VMA), and voids filled with asphalt (VFA).
1.2.This standard may also be used to provide a preliminary selection of mix parameters as a starting point for mix analysis and performance prediction analyses
that primarily use T 320 and T 322.
1.3.This standard may involve hazardous materials, operations, and equipment.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safetyconcerns, if any, associated with its use.
It is the responsibility of the user of this procedure to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory
limitationsprior to use.
2.1. AASHTO Standards:
M 320, Performance-Graded Asphalt Binder
