The Roller Compactor is considered to be the method of laboratory specimen compaction that results in slabs of asphaltic paving materials with properties that most closely simulate those of materials in the highway. Slabs can be compacted to target mixture densities using loads that are equivalent to those of full-scale compaction equipment. This compactor is hydraulically powered and controlled by a programmable logic controller (PLC) connected to an HMI (Human Machine Interface), which the operator can use to select the number of passes A manual pressure control is adjusted to set the required load. The main function of the Compact Steel Roller is to produce slabs for beam fatigue and wheel tracking tests.
