Abstract

A computer tool was developed to predict the transient thermal profile in an asphalt concrete layer (lift) during pavement construction. The key feature in this tool is the coupling of the thermal predictions with the compaction characteristics of an asphalt lift and an asphalt thermal properties database. The result is a computer tool that can be used to determine optimum strategies for paving operations; particularly in cold weather.
