How-to-Guide for Asphalt Pavement Compaction

Typically, asphalt comes out of the plant at about 300° F. At that temperature, it is relatively soft and is readily compacted. As it cools, it firms up and compaction becomes increasingly difficult. “The three most important factors when it comes to compaction are temperature, temperature, temperature.

How to Roll for Bonus, Part 2—Ideas for Perfect Compaction

Once the subgrade, capping and subbase layers for the road’s structure are in place, it will be your responsibility to compact the asphalt base layer, intermediate (binder) layer, and surface (wearing/finishing) layer to perfection. The purpose of compaction is to protect the whole system from deformation, water intrusion and more.

Compaction Washington Asphalt Pavement Association

Compaction. Compaction is the process by which the volume of air in an HMA mixture is reduced by using external forces to reorient the constituent aggregate particles into a more closely spaced arrangement. This reduction of air volume in a mixture produces a corresponding increase in HMA density (Roberts et al.,1996).
