Compaction Measurement and Reporting Pavement Interactive

Compaction reduces the volume of air in HMA. Therefore, the characteristic of concern is the volume of air within the compacted pavement. This volume is typically quantified as a percentage of air voids by volume and expressed as "percent air voids". Percent air voids is calculated by comparing a test specimen's bulk density with its theoretical maximum density (TMD) and assuming the

Compaction of the soil means pressing the soil particles close to each other by mechanical procedures. Air present at the void spaces are expelled in the soil mass as a result of Compaction, and so, the density is increased.. The Compaction and its testing by field density test (FDT) are very important and repetitive steps during earthwork phases of construction at a project.
