Abstract

In this paper, the effect of using next-generation equipment for pavement smoothness leveling, known as Non-Contact Digital Ski (NCDS), on the smoothness of asphalt pavements and its impact on the low temperature behavior of the paved mixture is evaluated. For this purpose, the International Roughness Index (IRI m/km) was measured on sections paved with and without NCDS. Asphalt mixture cores were then taken from the pavement to be tested with the Bending Beam Rheometer (BBR) and determine thermal stress. Based on simple graphical and statistical comparisons, it was found that the NCDS paving method results in considerably lower IRI coupled with a moderate reduction in thermal stress, suggesting a potential benefit of this technology also on the low temperature behavior of the mixture.
