Modeling Hot-Mix Asphalt Compaction

Project Information

Project ID: 
FHWA-PROJ-07-0033
Project Abstract: 

Develop a fundamental model for the compaction of hot-mix asphalt. The project has been initiated and it involves identifying potential models, relating model parameters to the lab and the field, selecting a suitable model, sensitivity analysis, verification, and finally delivery. This will also require coordination with efforts at the development of new roller equipment with intelligent compaction capabilities.

Goals

The key project objective is reliable and effective pavement design.
