Title: Intelligent Compaction
Date of recording: 25 November 2011
Intelligent compaction (IC) is an evolving technology to contribute to the compaction management using vibratory rollers that are equipped with roller-integrated measurements, global positioning system, onboard report system, and, optionally, auto-feedbacks. This technology has proven and demonstrated immediate benefits to agencies and contractors alike. This webinar will be conducted by sharing experiences from the work of ISSMGE-TC202: Transportation Geotechnics and the US FHWA/TPF Intelligent Compaction project. Its scope encompasses the applications to various geomaterials, including subgrade soils, subbase, and asphalt mixture materials, mainly addressing QC/QA guidelines. Furthermore, a road map of IC technologies will be presented to help construction industry improve productivity, efficiency and safety.
