COMPUTERIZED QUALITY CONTROL

This paper discusses the application of a computerized quality control package to a construction project in Utah. The package, comprising seven computer programs, was based on the premise that quality of bituminous pavements can be controlled by regulating bitumen content, aggregate gradation, relative compaction, and surface variation. The seven computer programs are described. As a result of this pilot project, Utah has begun statewide implementation of this quality control system.
