Chip-Seal Quality Assurance Using Percent Embedment

The objectives of this study are (1) to determine if texture measurements can be used to accurately calculate the percent embedment, (2) to identify the appropriate surface texture measurement as well as other parameters to be correlated with percent embedment, and (3) to identify an accurate and cost-effective method for chip seal texture measurement using the best available technology.
