REPORT OF AN INVESTIGATION TO DETERMINE THE TEMPERATURE OF ROLLED ASPHALT AFTER BEING LAID

The object of this investigation was to define the problems of recording the temperature of rolled asphalt after laying and to establish whether there were temperature variations throughout the depth and across the width of the material. The investigation was carried out on seven sites made up of BS 594 basecourse material (4 sites), BS 594 wearing course material (1 site), Marshall asphalt basecourse material (1 site), and Marshall asphalt wearing course material (1 site). "Laboratory" type biometallic thermometers checked for accuracy at 212 degrees F were inserted into the asphalt at an angle of 30 degrees. Readings were taken in a line across the width of the material immediately behind the paver at three different depths. Results are presented and discussed. /TRRL/
