MultiCool can be used with warm mix asphalt (WMA) just as you would with traditional hot mix asphalt to estimate how rapidly a freshly-placed mat will cool as a function of the initial mat temperature, ambient conditions, mat thickness and other properties. When using Evotherm, WMA, simply adjust the "Stop Temp" on Mix Specifications tab from the default 174 F to the Evotherm recommended stop rolling temperature of 150 F. The cooling rate prediction can help contractors better plan their rolling operations to more efficiently achieve target mat density.
The multicool v2.0 program also has a mobile version that reads better on a smart phone.
