Title:A Preliminary Evaluation of Superpave Level One Mix Design Procedure
Authors:Khaled Ksaibati, Jason Stephen, and George Huntington
University:University of Wyoming

In this study, the researchers evaluated the performance of asphalt mixes prepared using the Marshall mix design method and the Superpave level one mix design method. The Georgia Loaded Wheel Tester and the Thermal Stress Restrained Specimen Tester were used to test the rut-resistance and low-temperature cracking of asphalt mixes. This evaluation will assist in implementing the Superpave level one mix design method in Wyoming.
