Real-Time Density and Thickness Estimation of Thin

2019-7-15  Achieving desired density is crucial for thin asphalt concrete (AC) overlay construction quality control and quality assurance purposes. Ground penetrating radar (GPR) can be implemented for AC pavement layer thickness and density prediction during compaction. However, the overlapping of GPR reflections from surface and bottom of the thin AC overlay, as well as the presence of surface moisture ...

Prediction of thin asphalt concrete overlay thickness and ...

When nonlinear gradient descent was applied to field test measured signals, the average AC overlay thickness prediction and AC density estimation errors were 3 mm and 1.81%, respectively. This study demonstrates that the nonlinear gradient descent is an effective approach for estimating thin AC overlay thickness and density from GPR data.

Factors affecting asphalt compaction Asphalt magazine

In general, thick lifts of asphalt mix can be compacted more easily than thin lifts. The thicker the lift, the longer the heat is retained, and thus there is more time for the rolling to take place. As a general guideline, for finer dense graded mixes (those plotting above the 0.45-power chart maximum density line), the minimum lift thickness ...
