Abstract:For getting better understanding about the process of HMA compaction, a test section was constructed while the governing process parameters, like; compaction progress, temperature of the material at which activities were employed, equipment properties and meteorological circumstances, were monitored. The test section consists of two constructed layers divided in two lanes A and B. The different lanes were compacted at different temperatures and with a different number of roller passes. In spite of the fact that common asphalt practice suggests that material temperature affect mixtures compactibility, the test section results indicated that no relationship between temperature and compaction progress could be identified. Different measuring techniques to monitor compaction progress were compared.
