  • Abstract:
    Adequate and uniform compaction of road materials, such as soils, aggregate bases, or asphalt pavement materials, is one of the most important requirements in roadway construction. It is indispensable to strive for high quality of compaction to ensure long-lasting performance. Intelligent Compaction (IC), which uses modern vibratory rollers equipped with an integrated measurement system, an onboard computer reporting system, Global Positioning System (GPS) based mapping, and optional feedback control, is undergoing its implementation stage to help improve compaction quality control. The FHWA and AASHTO have developed national IC guide specifications. An increasing number of state agencies have also developed their own IC specifications. This Tech Brief will provide a review on those specifications and recommendations for future enhancements.
