Superpave Software

This is a Visual Basic add in for Excel that performs the calculations required for Superpave mix design.

A user's manual is available in "Automation of the Superpave Mix Design Process for the WVDOH",available from the above list of reports. Download both the program and the example problem. After clicking on the Superpave program, you will be given the option by Windows to Open or Save the program.  You should select SAVE, and follow the instructions on saving the program to a directory and folder of your choice. This is standard Windows methodology. If you select OPEN the spread sheet will be opened in the Windows Explorer Window and you will not be allowed to run the macro instructions in the calculator. After saving the Superpave Program, follow the instructions the Install and Run Instructions.

Please email any comments.
