"The objective of this investigation was to study the effect of the static compaction effort upon the physical and mechanical properties of asphalt concrete hot mixes. To study the effect of the static compaction upon the physical properties of the asphalt mixes, six mixes were prepared using hard, well graded crushed limestone as an aggregate, blended with an 85-100 penetration grade asphalt cement. The control mix was prepared and tested in accordance with the Marshall method for mix design. The other five mixes were prepared and tested using the same procedures of Marshall except for compaction, where five different static pressures were applied. The effect of the static compaction upon the mechanical properties of the mixes was also studied. Test specimens 2.1 inches in diameter and 4.00 inches in height were compacted using different static compaction efforts. These specimens were tested in unconfined compression. Both of these studies indicated that a relationship exists between the static compaction effort and the physical and mechanical properties of the asphalt concrete mixes"--Abstract, page ii.
