Intelligent Compaction (IC) is an emerging technology that allows asphalt roller operators to monitor compaction quality in real-time. This summer I worked alongside Greg Kalicki and Jason Shawn of Silver Star Construction to standardize and document the analysis of IC data from the field. Over three main paving projects, we developed a general strategy to increase the accuracy and time efficiency of IC data analysis in Veta software, which was then documented in procedures. Silver Star can confidently move forward with IC data collection to ensure optimal asphalt compaction with the ability to address aspects of roller operation that need improvement.
