2007-10-1  Studies have shown that, the minimum VMA should be based on the minimum asphalt film thickness rather than minimum asphalt content since the latter will vary for mixtures with different gradations. If VMA value is too low, the mix will have low film thickness resulting a dry HMA, which will result a low durability.

Volumetrics in Asphalt Mixtures

2019-3-18  Voids in the mineral aggregate (VMA) are the air-void spaces that exist between the aggregate particles in a compacted paving mixture, including spaces filled with asphalt. VMA represents the space that is available to accommodate the asphalt and the volume of air voids necessary in the mixture. The more VMA in the dry aggregate, the more space is available for the film of asphalt. Based on the fact that the thicker the asphalt film on the aggregate particles the more durable the mix, specific minimum requirements for VMA are specified in most specifications. Minimum VMA values should be adhered to so that a durable asphalt film thickness can be achieved. Increasing the density of gradation of the aggregate to a point where below minimum VMA values are obtained leads to thin films of asphalt and a dry looking, low durability mix. Therefore, economizing in asphalt content by lowering VMA
