Volumetric Design for Hot-Mix Asphalt (HMA)

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 (V ), voids in the mineral aggregate (VMA), and voids . a . filled with asphalt (VFA).

Most DOT specifications require 70-80 during the design phase; this requirement is intended for the mix during the design phase only and is typically not a production requirement.

It is believed that a minimum VMA requirement is necessary to ensure that the HMA mix is not deficient in asphalt cement (so the mix is durable), and/or in VTM (to prevent flushing and/or rutting). Current VMA requirements are based largely upon the work done during 1950 to 1960.
