Infrared thermography technologies are rapidly developing for thermal measurement and control of hot mix asphalt (HMA) pavement and airfield construction.
Two technologies currently used and/or specified include hand-held thermal imaging cameras for discrete measurement and paver-mounted temperature sensors for continuous measurement.
A field evaluation of these new technologies was conducted on three asphalt paving projects by collecting thermal readings in the truck box, paver hopper, and behind the paver screed…
