VMA as a Design Parameter in Hot-Mix Asphalt

2021-11-20  This has traditionally been addressed during mix design by a minimum voids in the mineral aggregate (VMA) requirement, based solely upon the nominal maximum aggregate size. The current research addresses three maximum aggregate sizes (11 mm, 12.5 mm, and 9.5 mm), three gradations (coarse, fine, and dense), and combinations of natural and ...

Effect of low VMA in hot mix asphalt on load-related ...

2017-9-15  Lower VMA values means that the intergranular space available for asphalt binder is reduced. This reduces the amount of effective asphalt binder that can be used in the mix, which in turns, leads to a lower binder film thickness around the aggregate particles. Film thickness is linked to mix durability.

Volumetric Design for Hot-Mix Asphalt (HMA)

2020-4-17  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).
