Set Asphalt Mix Design Standards
Use the dropdown menu highlighted below to select the correct standard for your project. The calculations will be made following the requirements of the state/standard you select.
State Differences in the Asphalt Declaration Module
This project is set to ASTM/AASHTO standards, and is reporting to the nearest tenth. The results of all the tests are reported below in the correct format for this standard.
When you change the standard, the changes are reflected in the declaration. We switched to Michigan state standards, and the report now shows the 2 decimal places.
With LASTRADA, managing various states differences and standards becomes easy. With the click of a button on our straightforward menu, you can be sure you're reporting in the right format. If your state isn't already in our system, we will add it.
Working with different state requirements can be logistically challenging. As the difference between agencies are more complex than knowing which test method to perform, agencies specify calculation rounding, correct reporting precision, and sometimes their own equations. This variation in standard can lead to errors if not followed correctly. I'll demonstrate LASTRADA's simple drop-down menu that manages unique agency requirements.
Here is a mixed design done for an airport project in Michigan. I want to use this mix design on another airport project and now I will change this to ASTM/ASHTO, so the calculations are for that agency. I have taken this mixed design into production in LASTRADA. We call that a declaration. Here's the project for our runway set to ASTM/ASHTOW for the FAA. The mixture I have selected is to the nearest tenth for that standing. I want to show you the impact of changing the state drop-down, if I change it back to Michigan, you can see another decimal place has been added among other changes.
