Research Pays Off: April Webinar on IC Soil Compaction Measurements

The National Road Research Alliance (NRRA) is hosting a virtual webinar, Evaluation of Levels 3-4 Intelligent Compaction Measurement Values (ICMV) for Soils Subgrade and Aggregate Subbase Compaction, on April 18 at 10 a.m. CST, presented by Ceren Aydin, Michigan State University, and Raul Velasquez, MnDOT.

The NRRA’s monthly seminar highlights research topics that will make an impact on the work done here in the state of Minnesota and around the country.

Intelligent Compaction Roller

This month’s topic is Intelligent Compaction (IC), a roller-based innovative technology that provides real time compaction monitoring and control. IC can be used to monitor roller passes, asphalt surface temperatures, machine vibration frequencies/amplitudes, and stiffness related values of compacted materials, but there is an immediate need to further develop IC both nationally and on a local level.

The webinar will discuss current research on advanced Intelligent Compaction Measurement Values (ICMV). The project team will evaluate Level 3-4 ICMVs for soils subgrade and aggregate subbase compaction to take IC to the next level.
