TechBrief: Intelligent Compaction Measurement Values (ICMV)
Primary Topic: Construction Technology
Description: Intelligent Compaction Measurement Value (ICMV) is a generic term for accelerometer-based measurement system instrumented on vibratory rollers as a key components of intelligent compaction systems. ICMV is based on the acceleration signals that represent the rebound force from the compacted materials to the roller drums. ICMV are in different forms of metrics with various levels of correlation to compacted material's mechanical and physical properties, such as stiffness, modulus, and density.
