Traditional asphalt mixtures are produced at temperatures ranging between 300oF to 325oF 150 oC to 165 C. These mixtures are commonly referred to as hot mix asphalt HMA. In recent years, there has been an increased interest in using a new type of asphalt mixtures called warm mix asphalt
This study evaluated the aging characteristics of foamed warm mix asphalt WMA produced by water injection in comparison to traditional hot mix asphalt HMA. Two asphalt binders PG 70-22 and PG 64-22 and one aggregate 12.5-mm NMAS limestone aggregate were used in this study.
viscosity of the asphalt binder by increasing its surface area. Theoretically, this provides a more uniform coating on the aggregates, as well increasing the workability of the asphalt mixture. Unfortunately, limited research and data has been reported on the use and performance of foamed asphalt for warm mix asphalt. This project will
Hot Mix Asphalt is produced and mixed at temperatures roughly between 120 and 190 °C The production temperatures of Hot Mix Asphalt depend on the bitumen used. The lower mixing and paving temperatures, obtained by the use of Warm Mix Asphalt, minimise fume and odour emissions and creates cooler working conditions for the asphalt workers.

PERFORMANCE OF FOAMED WARM MIX ASPHALT IN VIRGINIA OVER FOUR TO SIX YEARS. Stacey D. Diefenderfer, Ph.D., P.E. Senior Research Scientist. In Cooperation with the U.S. Department of Transportation.... Warm mix asphalt WMA is produced by incorporating additives into asphalt
Injected water and low production temperature during foaming make foamed warm-mix asphalt WMA more prone to rutting and stripping. Though foamed WMA is reported to exhibit higher rutting and stripping potentials in its early life, it is not clear how these characteristics change with field experienced aging and densification.

Limitations of Foamed Warm Mix Asphalt Produced by. foamed WMA mixtures. Another factor that might have contributed to the improvement in workability for foamed WMA mixtures is the presence of vapor pockets entrapped within the foamed asphalt binder that serve to keep the binder slightly expanded and reduce its viscosity.
Warm Mix Asphalt for Cold Weather Paving Olof Kristjansdottir Chair of the Supervisory Committee: Assistant Professor Stephen T. Muench Civil and Environmental Engineering Increased environmental awareness and stricter emissions regulations have led to a development of warm mix asphalt WMA to reduce the high mixing temperatures
Warm mix asphalt WMA is a new technology which asphalt mix is produced and placed at normal temperature. It has advantages including low cost, environmentally friendly, haul-convenience, and so on. WMA has been widely tested and applied in the USA in the last decade, but it has just started in China.
