Abstract: Asphalt concrete pavements on commercial airports in the United States are constructed according to the Federal Aviation Administration’s Advisory Circular 150/5370-10B, Item P-401, “Plant Mix Bituminous Pavements.” This specification does not provide guidance for using the Superpave gyratory compactor for designing asphalt mixtures. This report describes a laboratory program implemented to develop a procedure for proportioning airport asphalt concrete mixtures using the Superpave gyratory compactor. These recommendations are based on comparisons of volumetric property measurements of asphalt concrete mixtures compacted using the Marshall compaction procedure and the Superpave gyratory compactor.
