GeoGauge Measures Unbound Pavement Layer Uniformity

GeoGauge

The GeoGauge is a unique, QC/QA field tool that can be used to measure the uniformity of unbound pavement layers by measuring the variability in stiffness throughout a structure. It is an excellent tool for identifying construction anomalies that would otherwise go undetected during construction where only density or percent compaction measurements were used. By measuring stiffness, the GeoGauge can reveal and thus help reduce variabilities in layer properties, which density measurements may miss, thus allowing corrective actions to be taken during construction to ensure that the highest quality base and subgrade are achieved despite variations in materials used.

The GeoGauge is the perfect companion instrument for density measuring devices such as nuclear gauges and the electrical density gauge. Density measuring devices can be used to ensure proper compaction is achieved and the GeoGauge can be used to verify that the stiffness/modulus values assumed in the design specifications of new or rehabilitated pavement structures are met. Compacting and monitoring pavement layers directly to design requirements of structural layer stiffness or material modulus in addition to percent compaction during the construction process establishes the means to effectively control structural uniformity, strength and deflection, as well as enabling the monitoring of the construction quality control of various materials. This leads to better smoothness and longer lasting pavement surfaces at lower cost.
