ASPHALT

Asphalt Mix Design (Marshall, Superpave)

Asphalt mix design services available include the full range of sampling, specimen fabrication, testing, and report submittals required under most Owner-Agencies mix design acceptance procedures. Capabilities in product development include dense-graded hot and warm mix asphalt mixtures, stone mastic asphalt products, open-graded surface treatments, and a variety of other special mixtures. Laboratories are optimized for the most efficient workflow, with sufficient equipment capacity to enable the development of multiple products simultaneously.

Performance Testing (Hamburg, AMPT)

Performance testing services available include accelerated distress testing using the Hamburg loaded wheel method as well as determination of the dynamic modulus and flow number with the simple performance test (previously known as the asphalt mix performance test, or AMPT).

Forensic Inspection

Forensic inspection is provided upon request for professional evaluation of existing pavement exhibiting various forms of distress, including any necessary sampling, testing required.

Ride Quality

Ride quality services include data collection, analysis and reporting for a variety of ride quality statistics including International Roughness Index (IRI), Mean Roughness Index (MRI), Ride Number (RN), and Profilograph Index (PI). With multiple laser-sensor high-speed inertial profilers, a lightweight laser-sensor inertial profiler, and multiple reference (“walking”) profilers (AARB and SurPro), profile data can be collected with or without protection from traffic, depending on job requirements and our client’s needs. Profilers and operators are certified by Owner-Agencies as required.
