This spreadsheet estimates the asphalt tensile strength from user input asphalt mix parameters. The results are useful for a number of asphalt design and analysis tools including the MEDG Asphalt Design Spreadsheet.
The spreadsheet estimates the asphalt tensile strength from asphalt design parameters including void percentage, penetration value and viscosity. This is very useful for preliminary design or for evaluating existing flexible pavements.
The spreadsheet also includes unique tools allowing the user to see the effects of different void percentages. The ability to see these results all in one graph without changing the inputs saves a great deal of time, as the user can evaluate the full range of inputs without manually changing them over and over.
