This report presents recommended changes to AASHTO Standard Method of Test T283, “Resistance of Compacted Bituminous Mixture to Moisture Induced Damage,” to enhance T283’s compatibility with Superpave® volumetric mix design. It will be of particular interest to materials engineers in state highway agencies and contractor personnel responsible for the design of hot-mix asphalt (HMA) according to the current Superpave or older Marshall and Hveem methods.
