Compaction 101: Doing the Right Things, the Right Way
Roller compaction is the last opportunity during the paving process to produce a long-lasting and high-quality pavement. This session will cover the compaction basics that will help prepare attendees for challenges faced during construction operations. The common objectives include uniform target density and a pavement surface smoothness that earns rideability awards and bonuses. Using compaction best practices will consistently produce highest quality pavements with lowest production cost.
• Understand the four elements of compaction
• How to balance production, laydown, and compaction operations in order to match paving speed with rolling speed.
• Understanding which factors can affect compaction, and practices to mitigate negative impacts
