Satisfactory pavement performance can only be assured with appropriate process controls to ensure compacted materials meet proper density and stiffness requirements.
The TRB National Cooperative Highway Research Program's NCHRP Research Report 933: Evaluating Mechanical Properties of Earth Material During Intelligent Compaction details the development of procedures to estimate the mechanical properties of geomaterials using intelligent compaction (IC) technology in a robust manner so that departments of transportation can incorporate it in their specifications.
Appendix A, containing the proposed specifications and test methods, is included in the report. Appendices B through H appear in a supplementary file.
