Comparison of Laboratory Compaction Methods Using X-Ray Computer Tomography

This paper investigates changes and differences in homogeneity of asphalt concrete specimens during Marshall Compaction and Rolling-Wheel Compaction through the use of standard air-void content determination (AV) and X-Ray Computer Tomography (CT). Focus is on having experimental aspects serve as a basis for laboratories and producers for optimizing compaction procedures and devices. It is shown that X-Ray CT is proven to be a powerful tool for understanding compaction mechanisms and for optimizing compaction procedures and devices.
