The Asphalt Temperature Calculator allows you to estimate the temperature of asphalt based on factors like air temperature, wind speed, and, in advanced calculations, sun exposure. This calculator is useful for road work planning, asphalt maintenance, and environmental temperature assessments

### How To calculate

Each input field has a specific purpose for calculating asphalt temperature. Use the following guide to understand each input:

**Input Field** |
**Description** |

**Air Temperature (°F)** |
Enter the current air temperature in Fahrenheit. This helps calculate or adjust the asphalt temperature. |

**Wind Speed (mph)** |
Input the wind speed in miles per hour. Wind affects the cooling rate of asphalt. |

**Asphalt Temperature (°F)** |
Enter the current or calculated asphalt temperature in Fahrenheit. Leave it blank if calculating. |

In the **Advanced Calculator**, additional fields allow a more precise calculation with sun exposure as a factor.

**Advanced Calculator Guide**

The **Advanced Calculator** includes sun exposure, making it ideal for accurate results based on sunlight’s effect on asphalt temperature.

**Input Field** |
**Description** |

**Air Temperature (°F)** |
The surrounding air temperature in Fahrenheit. |

**Wind Speed (mph)** |
Wind speed in miles per hour, affecting asphalt cooling. |

**Sun Exposure (%)** |
Enter the percentage of sun exposure. More sun typically results in higher asphalt temperatures. |

**Advanced Asphalt Temperature (°F)** |
Displays the calculated asphalt temperature considering air temperature, wind speed, and sun exposure. |

### How To Calculate

Below are examples demonstrating how each calculator mode can be used for asphalt temperature estimation.

**Example 1: Basic Calculator**

**Input** |
**Value** |
**Calculation** |
**Result** |

**Air Temperature** |
**80°F** |
Asphalt Temp = Air Temp + (0.2 * Wind Speed) |
**85°F** |

**Wind Speed** |
**25 mph** |
Asphalt Temp = Air Temp + (0.2 * Wind Speed) |
**85°F** |

**Asphalt Temperature** |
– |
85°F |
**Result** |

**Example 2: Advanced Calculator**

**Input** |
**Value** |
**Calculation** |
**Result** |

**Air Temperature** |
**85°F** |
Adv Asphalt Temp = Air Temp + (0.2 * Wind Speed) + (0.5 * Sun Exposure) |
**99°F** |

**Wind Speed** |
**30 mph** |
Adv Asphalt Temp = Air Temp + (0.2 * Wind Speed) + (0.5 * Sun Exposure) |
**99°F** |

**Sun Exposure** |
**50%** |
Adv Asphalt Temp = Air Temp + (0.2 * Wind Speed) + (0.5 * Sun Exposure) |
**99°F** |
