Density of Asphalt Concrete-How Much Is Needed?

The density produced during the mix design should not be used as the reference density because the laboratory properties will be somewhat different than test results on plant-produced materials. Aggregates sometimes break down during mix production, creating an increase in dust and thus altering the properties of the compacted asphalt mixture.
