DEVELOPING AND TRIAL USE OF ACCEPTANCE SAMPLING PLANS FOR ASPHALT CONSTRUCTION

PREVIOUS RESEARCH INDICATED THAT PRESENT ACCEPTED BITUMINOUS PAVEMENT CONSTRUCTION DOES NOT MEET SPECIFIED REQUIREMENTS. ALSO ON PROJECTS RESEARCHED EACH CONTRACTOR WAS PAID 100 PERCENT OF BID PRICE EVEN THOUGH THERE WAS A WIDE RANGE OF BELOW SPECIFICATION CONSTRUCTION BETWEEN JOBS. A SPECIFICATION DEVELOPED WILL ACCEPT CONSTRUCTION ON THE BASIS OF THE AVERAGE OF 5 TEST RESULTS PER LOT FOR (1) NOMINAL LARGEST SIEVE, #4 SIEVE, #30 SIEVE, #200 SIEVE, AC CONTENT, COMPACTION AND THICKNESS. ADJUSTMENT PRICE SCHEDULES ARE PROVIDED FOR THE ACCEPTANCE OF BELOW STANDARD CONSTRUCTION. A NUCLEAR GAGE CORRELATION WITH DENSITIES OBTAINED FROM CORES IS INCLUDED. /BPR/
