SPR-4604: Demonstration of Infrared Heating System for Mitigation of Positive Elevation Change Areas of Localized Roughness (Bumps) in HMA

The primary purpose of this research is to demonstrate the process of utilizing infrared technology to mitigate bumps in hot mix asphalt (HMA)/composite pavements. An infrared pavement heating system consisting of a self contained maintenance trailer, capable of transporting heating equipment, infrared heating array, compaction equipment and hand tools will be purchased. It is anticipated that procurement of the complete system will increase the efficiency over needing multiple vehicles and systems to convey makeup HMA material and compaction equipment separately.
