TRAINING LEVEL: Intermediate

CLASS SIZE: Minimum: 1 Maximum: 1

NOTES:This course will be discontinued August 1st. Anyone currently enrolled will have six months from time of registration to complete the course.


This training was prepared by the Transportation Curriculum Coordination Council (TCCC) in partnership with NHI to review Superpave mix design. This training is recommended for the Transportation Curriculum Coordination Council levels II, III and IV.

This training will give Hot Mix Asphalt materials engineers and/or materials technicians a better understanding of Superpave mix design process and analysis. The training will also give a better understanding of volumetrics for those who perform mix designs (typically technicians) and those who analyze the data (typically engineers).

Module 1: Mix Design. This module will describe the design of asphalt concrete mix and how Superpave mix design is analyzed.

Module 2: Volumetrics. This module will cover asphalt mixture volumetrics and volumetric properties using phase diagrams.


Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the procedures involved in the Superpave mix design
  • Recall how to select the proper materials for a Superpave mix
  • Describe how Superpave mix is compacted
  • Define HMA Volumetric terms
  • Describe factors which can influence key mass-volume relationships and calculations
  • Describe how to use phase diagrams to calculate volumetric properties


This training is targeted to those who are responsible for the laboratory testing and evaluation of Superpave mix designs.
