New NRRA Research on Intelligent Compaction Measurement Values (ICMV)
The National Road Research Alliance (NRRA) has just funded research project “Evaluation of Levels 3-4 Intelligent Compaction Measurement Values (ICMV) for Soils Subgrade and Aggregate Subbase Compaction.” Dr. George K. Chang of The Transtec Group (also President of ISIC) and Prof. Soheil Nazarian of UTEP (also Executive Committee member of ISIC, www.ISIC.org) will lead this research project.
The goals of this research are to evaluate Level 3-4 ICMV systems against Level 1-2 ICMV systems for soils and base compaction, and develop a blue print for future certification procedures of IC. The final deliverable is expected to be by the end of 2020. Further information can be found on this NRRA webpage.
