ABSTRACT: With the increase in the number of cars in the modern society, the quality of the road has been paid more and more attention. The useful life of the highway is rather short, the phenomenon of the early destruction of the pavement is widespread, the main reason is that its compaction degree is insufficient. Compaction degree is the key to the construction quality control of asphalt concrete pavement, and it is one of the most economical and effective technical measures to ensure the strength and stability of pavement. This paper introduced several compaction degree detection techniques to describe the operation principle and the process of detecting the compaction quality of road surface in highway construction. Which also analyzed the factors affecting the experimental results, and pointed out different test results of different operation, then demonstrated the effect of test method on the quality of pavement construction.
