Changing Face of Compaction & Compaction Control for Road Building – A Global Review
Compaction is one of the most important processes in roadway construction. A uniform base and subgrade is a key ingredient in maximising pavement performance and the stiffness is a major contributor to this uniformity, whether it is in pavements, road embankments or bridge abutments.
This article challenges Australian road authorities and peak bodies to embrace an integrated approach combining Intelligent Compaction with the measurement of modulus for evaluating compaction using the Light Weight Deflectometer.
