Description: Technical report
Abstract: The National Center for Asphalt Technology (NCAT) completed construction of a 2.7-km oval test track during the year 2000. The Geotechnical and Structures Laboratory (GSL) of the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) assisted with the installation of instrumentation for environmental monitoring. This report documents the calibration and installation of moisture probes, temperature probes, and tipping buckets. The moisture probes were placed beneath the pavement structure, near the top of select fill material. The temperature probes were placed at various depths in the asphalt concrete. The tipping buckets were positioned at subsurface drainage outlets. The collaboration between GSL, NCAT, and a private consultant resulted in the successful installation of 23 dataloggers, 184 temperature probes, 29 moisture probes, and 3 tipping buckets.
