Summary of Intelligent Compaction on Soil and Subbase

General Interest: provides practical guidance to engineers responsible for the day-to-day design, construction, rehabilitation, maintenance, and management of pavements.

Primary Topic: Construction Technology

Description: This Tech Brief represents the second in a series of three tech briefs that are targeted at sharing information about intelligent compaction (IC) technology and helping to promote its use throughout the U.S. The first Tech Brief provides an Executive Summary that provides background information, a detailed description of the technology, and identifies the advantages and implementation considerations. It is applicable to IC for both soil/ subbase and hot-mix asphalt/ warm-mix asphalt (HMA/WMA) construction. Using the findings of recent demonstration projects, this Tech Brief provides information that demonstrates the field application of this technology for soil and subbase materials.
