Compacting Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) mixtures to a satisfactory level of density is probably the most important criteria used by owner/agencies for extending the performance life of asphalt pavements. This course uses both lecture and problem-solving case studies to involve participants in discovering the importance of HMA compaction. Construction "Best Practices" will be discussed so participants will gain a working knowledge of how rollers should be operated in order to optimize the efficiency of the roadway compaction operation. An exam is offered that will test the participant's knowledge of key elements in compacting HMA mixtures.
