necessary field and laboratory test data to provide information around which a test method and/or specification for control of longitudinal joint density could be written. Three recently constructed pavements were selected for field testing.


Twin Peaks inspectors monitor field placement of asphalt to ensure the performance of pavement. and prevent premature failure. Compaction is the single most important factor that affects the ultimate performance of hot mix asphalt. Temperature significantly influences pavement's density, as asphalt binder stiffens as it cools.

The IDT test parameters are shown in Table 2.To observe the strain field and particle distribution during deformation, the asphalt mixture specimens should be cut to obtain the cutting surface (Fig. 2(b)).)). To match sub-region in the original image ...


11.9 If the relative density of the test section is above 96 % the Division will make a visual evaluation of the mat and the mixture to look for any appearance of excessive asphalt or an extremely fine mix which may result in over compaction. A review of any density test results obtained from the existing pavement will be made to determine if ...


There are numerous ways to test asphalt in the field, we generally use the Roller Pass/Constrol Strip method and secondly we use the Rice Value in determining the in-place density. However, sometimes our project specs call out the Marshall Method, but they leave the compaction requirements blank. any help would be appreciated. Thanks.


the compacted asphalt mixture. The density produced with a manual hammer has been shown to correlate with density in the field after traffic (7). Hence any other type of compaction (mechanical or otherwise) must be calibrated to produce a density equal to that obtained with the hand hammer or better yet should be calibrated

Calculate the difference between the core density and the average nuclear gauge density at each test site to the nearest 1 kg/m3 (0.1 lb/ft3). Calculate the average


As noted above, specific gravity and density values are determined using the ASTM D2041/AASHTO T 209 theoretical method (Rice test) for the loose asphalt material and ASTM D2726/AASHTO T 166 to determine the bulk specific gravity of compacted specimens. There is also a need to describe various types of air void contents.


The Nuclear Moisture Density device (or Nuclear Gauge) is specifically designed to measure the moisture and density of soils, aggregates, cement, and lime treated materials, and to measure the density of asphalt concrete. It offers the Inspector and Contractor a method of obtaining fast, accurate and in‐place measurement of densities and moisture.

What Is Field Density Test? Various types of field density tests are being practiced in different parts of the world for the evaluation of in-situ soil compaction and knowing the relative degree of Compaction.. FDT, Full name is Field Density Test, is a Quality Control test carried out at the site for knowing the increased Compaction or Density or achieved at a site on the soil layer.
