About the research

Research objectives are to design and implement a laboratory study to evaluate asphalt mixtures commonly used in Iowa by using the Superpave Simple Performance Test(s). The study will provide a summary of material property values for use in the AASHTO Guide for the Design of New and Rehabilitated Pavement Structures.
