Intelligent Compaction for Asphalt Materials

Intelligent compaction (IC) is a construction method relatively new to the USA that uses modern vibratory rollers equipped with IC components and technologies. Though used for decades in the rest of the world, IC technology is less mature for its application in asphalt compaction than its counterpart for soils and subbase compaction. Under the on-going FHWA/TPF IC studies, a tremendous amount of knowledge has been gained on hot mix asphalt (HMA) IC. This TechBrief summarizes current information on IC for asphalt materials and concludes with several recommendations.
