Pilot Implementation of Bump Detection Profiler

During Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) Project 0-4385, a sliding profiler device was developed that has the capability to be attached to a concrete paver for determining the location of bumps on fresh concrete. This device has the potential to provide TxDOT and contractors an early identification of defects in newly poured concrete. Contractors could then fix the defects while the concrete is still fresh. During Project 5-4385-01, this device was implemented on several construction projects. This report describes the implementation of this device.
