The Superpave for Construction Course contains information for field construction personnel on the Superpave mix design system and the control of field produced Hot Mix Asphalt.
There are two modules in this course. The first module introduces the Superpave Hot Mix Asphalt design testing and analysis. It will cover design testing procedures, design analysis methods, and will include calculations to analyze the volumetrics of paving samples. Module two includes relevant volumetric examples including the use of phase diagrams to calculate volumetric properties. Example problems are included. This course is an excellent learning tool to assist in understanding corrective actions for volumetric parameters.
