Mix Design Program
Congratulations on your purchase of the Asphalt Institute Mix Design Program! We believe this tool
will help you more efficiently design asphalt mixtures. The Asphalt Institute Mix Design Program
(AIMD) is structured for Superpave and Marshall mix design procedures. Many other programs exist
that in essence perform the same basic functions as AIMD. However, many of the programs available
on the market today are very rigid and cumbersome in structure and do not allow the user to modify the
program to their individual needs. The AIMD is an Excel based program that is password protected to
prevent the user from accidentally erasing or modifying the program. The worksheet password is
“AIMD” and is only available on workbooks that are duplicated through the Utility function discussed
in this manual. This program was written in strict conformance to the Asphalt Institute SP-2 and MS-2
manuals and test procedures utilized in our research laboratory in Lexington, Kentucky. Many users
will find that they use different test methods, sieve sizes or specifications. Therefore, the password to all
of the individual worksheets has been given to you to maximize your ability to modify the program to
meet your requirements. Caution however, must be advised. AIMD contains a tremendous amount of
formats, links and equations. Modification of this program should only be done on duplicated templates
as shown under the Main User Screen section of this manual. We also advise that modifications be
made by knowledgeable designers and those who are proficient in Excel programming.

Disclaimer
The Asphalt Institute does not provide ongoing customer technical support with this Mix Design
program, which requires Microsoft Excel to operate.
All reasonable care has been taken in the preparation of the program; however, the Asphalt Institute
can accept no responsibility in its use. Engineering judgment and experience must be used to
properly utilize the principles and evaluate the results of this computer program.

updated version of Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC), this install will start automatically. A
reboot may be required at the end of the MDAC install. Choose to reboot if you are prompted. The
installation will automatically continue after completion of the rebooting. Continue to choose the
defaults throughout the remainder of the installation process. An Asphalt Institute icon should appear on
your desktop following the completion of the installation.
The first time you run the program by double clicking on the icon, a check will be performed for missing
or outdated components on your computer. You may possibly be prompted to run JET.exe from the CD.
If you receive this prompt, click Start, Run, and enter X:\JET.EXE, where X is your CDROM drive.
One final step is required. A database containing all of the templates and archive data must be installed
from the CD. This step is only required the first time you run the program after installation. The
program will automatically prompt you for the database. Browse to the CDROM drive and open the
Database folder. Choose the Control database file and click insert.
Installation is now complete.

Main User Screen

The screen shot shown above is the main screen used to access new or completed mix design files. The
program contains the 4 New Workbooks shown. A brief description of each workbook is shown in the
lower portion of the main user screen. Select the workbook of choice and click the Open button. When
the new workbook is opened, the program will as you for a new file name. This should be a unique name
for each project or design.

The new workbook will be automatically saved under this filename and will appear later under the
Existing Workbooks section as shown on the main user screen.
The 4 - New Workbooks shown are blank workbooks ready for new project information. They may also
be viewed with sample data already loaded into the program by clicking on the “with sample data” box
shown on the main user screen.
To close the workbook, after entering data, click on either of the two “X” boxes located in the upper
right-hand corner of the worksheet.

The file will be automatically saved under the name previously designated when the blank workbook
was opened. All project workbooks must be accessed through this program and will not appear on the
hard drive of your computer. The newly saved workbooks will appear under the Existing Workbooks
section in the order they were saved. Clicking on the “By Name” button will sort the files
alphabetically. After the data files have been sorted by name, a “By Date” button will replace the “By
Name” button and sort the files by the date they were saved.
The “Utility” menu button contains two options. The Compact Database option will reorganize the
existing workbooks that have been moved or deleted and will make the program function better after the
program has been utilized for a period of time. The Duplicate and Modify Template function will allow
the user to modify a blank template to conform to the users needs and save it with a new, unique name
under the New Workbooks section.

This program conforms to Asphalt Institute Manual Series SP-2 and will assist you in performing a Superpave Mix Design analysis for up to 5 different aggregate gradation combinations at one asphalt content. The Print Worksheet button appears on all AIMD worksheets.Superpave Trial Blending Program The Superpave Trial Blending program is a combination of ten Excel worksheets in one Workbook. Using only some of the data will result in mixture costs that are in error. This function will select a predetermined range of the worksheet and pop up a print dialogue box. Simply enter a description for the aggregate material and cost.Cover Sheet Worksheet 1 – Cover Sheet All Asphalt Institute Mix Design (AIMD) worksheets contain areas in yellow for data entry on. If all material costs are not known leave the fields blank. This information will be transferred to many other areas in the Workbook. . The program will allow up to ten different aggregates for use in trial blending. This program will calculate estimated mix cost and is very helpful when dealing with unknown aggregate sources Worksheet 1 .

The first step is to enter the nominal maximum aggregate size of the mixture.Worksheet 2 . This will determine the appropriate 45th power chart. Values entered must represent the appropriate value for the entire stockpile of material. Interpolate a value if actual data is not available. To improve the appearance of the 45th power chart. The Aggregate Materials Worksheet imports the Gsb and Gsa values computed on the third worksheet called Gsb Sheet. If these values are already known. control points and volumetric requirements on other sheets in the workbook. directly enter the appropriate Gsb and Gsa into the respective fields. design esals and depth to the surface of the mix to determine the gyratory levels and aggregate specifications. Enter the project 20 yr.Aggregate Materials Data The Aggregate Materials Data worksheet is where aggregate gradations and characteristics are entered into the program.

Enter the individual aggregate characteristics into the fields provided. Individual stockpile data is
required in order to mathematically calculate blended values on later sheets. Two additional lines called
Other, are provided for local specifications or requirements that may exist. Directly enter any
recommended specifications in the yellow areas provided.
The entire recommended specifications section is only for comparison purposes and will be transferred
to the trial blend sheets later in the program.

Worksheet 3 - Gsb Sheet

Gsb Sheet Screen Shot
The Gsb Sheet is provided for calculating the combined Gsb, Gsa and water absorption for up to 10
stockpiles. Direct data entry of test weights are provided for duplicate specimens on both the coarse and
fine fractions of each pile.
The combined Gsb and Gsa will be automatically calculated for each stockpile based on the % passing
the 4.75 mm sieve entered for each stockpile on the Aggregate Materials Data worksheet and place the
result in the appropriate location on that sheet.
If only single samples are performed, repeat the test weights for specimen 2. If only the coarse or fine
fractions are tested, manually determine the appropriate values for each stockpile and directly enter them
on the Aggregate Materials Data sheet as previously described.

Worksheets 4 thru 8 – Trial Blend 1 thru Trial Blend 5

Trial Blend 1 – Worksheet 4a

Trial Blend 1 – Worksheet 4b

Worksheets 4 thru 8 are very similar and contain two distinct areas.
The (a) portion of each worksheet is the area to determine the design aggregate structure that will be
used in the trial blend.
The (b) portion of each worksheet is located adjacent and to the right of the (a) section. This area of the
worksheet calculates the asphalt and aggregate batching information that pertains to the gradation
combination determined in the (a) section.

Worksheet 4a – Determining design aggregate structure.

Worksheet 4a Screenshot
As previously discussed, the yellow areas are the only areas available for data entry. All of the
aggregate characteristics, costs and specifications are transported into worksheets 4 thru 8 from the
cover sheet and aggregate data sheet. The user must enter the appropriate stockpile percentages into the
yellow cells in decimal form. The blended gradation and consensus properties are automatically
calculated for any aggregate combination. The worksheet will compare the calculated result to the
specification shown. Properties that fail to meet the specification will show up in red. The final blend is
also plotted on the 45th power chart as shown below. It is very helpful to split the screen horizontally as
shown below by the red arrow. The plotted curve can then be observed as the aggregate percentages are
adjusted.

As additional aggregate combinations are determined for trial blends 2 – 5, the accompanying 45th
power chart continues to plot the previous trial blend curves. The screen shot below is for Trial Blend 5.

. The user must enter the aggregate batch weight and asphalt percentage to obtain the batching weights. The section at the bottom of this sheet is a helpful tool that will assist you in adjusting batch weights for over or under sized specimens.Worksheet 4b – Aggregate and Asphalt Batching Each trial blend worksheet contains the above batching section for laboratory preparation of samples.
