The original vision of the Superpave mix design system was to include performance tests in addition to volumetric requirements. However, the proposed performance tests were not implemented primarily because they were not practical for routine use. In the early years of Superpave implementation, the primary focus was on rutting resistance. Most state highway agencies (SHAs) now report that rutting is not a significant problem. However, there have been increasing concerns that asphalt mixtures being produced may not have an adequate amount of asphalt binder, and thus, are susceptible to durability and cracking issues.
