FACTORS AFFECTING COMPACTION
This pamphlet outlines the various aspects of asphalt pavement construction which can affect compaction and suggests means of compensating for them. Compaction can be influenced by a number of factors including aggregate texture, asphalt content, asphalt viscosity, mix design, mix temperature, course thickness, air temperature, surface temperature, and wind. Depending on the problem, various corrective measures may be necessary to insure proper compaction including altering the mix design, changing the mix temperature and using a different type and size of roller. A summary table lists specific remedies for specific situations.
