## What is Asphalt Compaction Calculator?

The Asphalt Compaction Calculator is a tool that helps estimate the thickness of asphalt compaction required for a specific project. It uses a simple formula to calculate the thickness of asphalt compaction needed based on the poured thickness and compaction factor provided by the user.

**The Formula**

The formula used by the Asphalt Compaction Calculator is:

**AC = T – T * CF**

Where AC is the thickness of asphalt compaction needed, T is the poured thickness of the asphalt, and CF is the compaction factor.

For example, if the poured thickness of the asphalt is 4 inches and the compaction factor is 0.8, the thickness of asphalt compaction needed would be:

AC = 4 – 4 * 0.8 = 0.8 inches

**How to Calculate**

To use the Asphalt Compaction Calculator, the user simply needs to input the poured thickness of the asphalt and the compaction factor into the form provided on the web page. After clicking the “Calculate” button, the thickness of asphalt compaction needed will be displayed in the output field.

**FAQs**

**What is the compaction factor in the formula?**

The compaction factor is a ratio that represents the amount of compaction achieved during the asphalt paving process. It is typically between 0.8 and 0.9 for most asphalt paving projects.

**What is the poured thickness of asphalt?**

The poured thickness of asphalt is the thickness of the asphalt layer that is initially poured onto the surface before it is compacted.

**How accurate is the Asphalt Compaction Calculator?**

The accuracy of the Asphalt Compaction Calculator depends on the accuracy of the input values provided by the user. It is recommended to use the most accurate values possible for the poured thickness and compaction factor to ensure the most accurate estimate of the required thickness of asphalt compaction.

**Conclusion**

The Asphalt Compaction Calculator is a useful tool for estimating the thickness of asphalt compaction required for a specific project. By using the provided formula, the user can quickly and easily calculate the required thickness of asphalt compaction based on the poured thickness and compaction factor.
