Profile Equipment Verification 2009 (Special Project)

The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) Standard Specifications require each new pavement (PCC or HMA) be tested for profile ride quality acceptance using a California profilograph with a 0.20-inch blanking band. This method for measurement allows high frequency low amplitude roughness to go undetected during the testing; however, this roughness is still bothersome to the traveling public. This project would include conducting the 2009 PEV Program and performing a data analysis to evaluate the profile devices and their measurement capabilities.
