Asphalt Vibratory Compactor (AVC)
The AVC is designed to compact hot mix asphalt into cylindrical and beam test specimens. The AVC compacts asphalt at the same amplitude, same frequency, and same relative weight that is experienced with a vibratory roller on the roadway.
The AVC controls allow a user to compact specimens at multiple frequencies, amplitudes, and downward pressures.
The Beam specimens are used for fatigue testing in the APA/APA Jr. The AVC is also capable of compacting beam specimens for the 4-point bending beam fatigue test.
