Asphalt concrete pavements on commercial airports in the United States are constructed according to the Federal Aviation Administration Advisory Circular 150/5370-10B, Item P-401, “Plant Mix Bituminous Pavements.” This specification does not provide guidance for using the Superpave gyratory compactor in the design of asphalt mixtures. This thesis describes a laboratory study of hot mix asphalt (HMA) mix design for airport pavements that uses the Superpave gyratory compactor. These recommendations are based on comparisons of volumetric property measurements of HMA mixtures compacted using Marshall compaction and Superpave gyratory compaction.
