COMPACTION OF ASPHALT CONCRETE PAVEMENT

A SERIES OF EXPERIMENTAL PROJECTS DESIGNED TO DEVELOP IMPROVED COMPACTION PROCEDURE AND FIELD CONTROL WERE CONDUCTED BY THE ASPHALT PAVING ASSOCIATION AND THE WASHINGTON STATE HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT. STUDIES INCLUDED VARIATION IN LIFT THICKNESS, COMPACTION TEMPERATURE, AND ROLLER WEIGHT. PNEUMATIC ROLLERS WERE COMPARED WITH STEEL FOR USE IN BREAKDOWN. RESULTS OF THIS STUDY ARE BRIEFLY SUMMARIZED. THERE WAS A GENERAL DECREASE IN PERMEABILITY WITH AN INCREASE IN PASSES, TIRE PRESSURE, ROLLER WEIGHT AND DENSITY. A LARGE CHANGE IN THE PERMEABILITY READING REFLECTED A CORRESPONDING CHANGE IN DENSITY. NUCLEAR DENSITY DEVICES, THE WATER PERMEABILITY TEST, AND THE AIR PERMEABILITY TEST ARE PROCEDURES AVAILABLE NOW TO EVALUATE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF COMPACTION.
