Conventional volumetric tests are not enough for characterisation of modern asphalt mixtures, including high RAP and polymer-modified mixes, warm mix asphalt, etc. Performance-based test methods are needed.  In the review article we look at the benefits of using performance tests, their use for mixture design and QC. Based on close to 200 literature sources we provide a table with the expected trends in test results due to various changes in mixture design.
Performance-design of asphalt mixtures and review of key parameters was published in Marterials and Design and is available here
