TRB's National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Report 673: A Manual for Design of Hot-Mix Asphalt with Commentary incorporates the many advances in materials characterization and hot-mix asphalt (HMA) mix design technology developed since the conclusion of the Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP).
The final report on the project that developed NCHRP Report 673 and Appendixes C through F to NCHRP Report 673 were published as NCHRP Web-Only Document 159. The titles of the appendixes are as follows:
• Appendix C: Course Manual
• Appendix D: Draft Specification for Volumetric Mix Design of Dense-Graded HMA
• Appendix E: Draft Practice for Volumetric Mix Design of Dense-Graded HMA
• Appendix F: Tutorial
The companion Excel spreadsheet HMA tool and the training course materials described in NCHRP Report 673 are available for download from the Internet.
In January 2012, TRB released NCHRP Report 714: Special Mixture Design Considerations and Methods for Warm Mix Asphalt: A Supplement to NCHRP Report 673: A Manual for Design of Hot Mix Asphalt with Commentary. The report presents special mixture design considerations and methods used with warm mix asphalt.
In January 2012, TRB released an errata to NCHRP Report 673: Page 41, Table 4-7, and page 123, Table 8-10, respectively, should be replaced with a new table.
