Tech Transfer Success: How the DAV Improved SuperpaveTM ...

The Superpave asphalt mixture design system requires gyratory compactors to provide a uniform compaction effort. This effort is based on the downward pressure inside the compaction mold, the speed and number of rotations, and the tilt or angle of the model. The most important component is the angle, which creates the shearing action.
