Description:

PaveCool has been developed to assist asphalt contractors, inspectors and engineers to make rapid decisions regarding cool-weather paving. A heat flow model is used to compute the temperature drop in the mat and the time it takes for the asphalt mix to cool from its delivery temperature to the recommended stopping temperature.

 

Description:

The Asphalt Professional's Ultimate Field Tool. Asphalt Pro is designed with the professional asphalt contractor and inspector in mind. The app includes a number of tools to match workflow and inspection practices in the field.

 

Description:

The Paving Production Calculator is a tool for asphalt paving professionals to plan their paving jobs by helping to estimate trucking needs, paving speeds, compaction and other factors. The calculator can help optimize the job site, reducing inefficiency and contributing to smoothness.

Description:

This test method determines the bulk specific gravity (Ga) of compacted bituminous mixture specimens. Use the Ga of the specimens to calculate the degree of densification or percent compaction of the bituminous mixture.

 

Description:

Use this test method to randomly select points from which to sample loose bituminous mixtures at the plant and to determine roadway locations for obtaining hot-mix asphalt cores.

 

Description:

Use this test method to obtain a thermal profile that identifies the presence of thermal segregation of an uncompacted mat of hot mix asphalt.

 

Description:

Use Part I of this test method to obtain cores drilled from compacted bituminous pavements.Use Part II of this test method to trim cores to prepare specimens for laboratory testing.

 

Description:

Measure and evaluate the ride quality of pavement surfaces.
