Stiffness and Strength Based In-Place Evaluation of Compacted Unbound Materials

Several non-nuclear and portable tools for structural properties assessment of pavement materials have been currently introduced to the market. They are capable of directly measure in-place stiffness and strength of compacted pavement materials, which are the fundamental properties for mechanistic design and performance evaluation of the pavement system. This paper presents stiffness and strength based methods for rapid in-place monitoring compaction quality control during highway construction in Thailand. Results indicated that these methods exhibited good potential for construction quality control as well as the development of performance-based specifications in Thailand.
