Application of LADAR in the Analysis of Aggregate Characteristics
| Project Data
||Virginia Tech Transportation Institute|
The objective of this project was to develop and evaluate a LADAR system capable of precise and accurate measurement of the aggregate characteristics of shape, volume, angularity, surface texture, specific surface area, and volumetric gradation. The LADAR system would be applicable to aggregate in each of three size categories, coarse (2 in. to No. 4), fine (No. 4 to No. 200), and microfine (P200), and would be suitable for routine use in research, central, and field laboratories for PCC and HMA mixture design and quality assurance.
