Measurement of air void content in hot mix asphalts ...

2012-1-1  Assessing the air void content of hot mix asphalts (HMAs) is a vital and crucial factor for quality control and quality assurance (QC/QA) procedures. Layer geometry, mix composition, aggregate and asphalt binder specific gravities, and compaction characteristics (i.e., energy) together determine the air void content.

Dependence of Volumetric Parameters of Hot-Mix

Assessing the volumetrics of hot-mix asphalts (HMAs) is an important aspect of quality-control and quality-assurance procedures. The economic value of HMAs is usually assessed in terms of their mix bulk specific gravity (G m b), air-void content, voids in mineral aggregate, and voids filled with asphalt.However, the results for specific gravity can vary with the coring process and
