Abstract

The MIT-Scan-T2 device is marketed as a non-destructive way to determine pavement thickness on both HMA and PCC pavements. PCC pavement thickness determination is an important incentivedisincentive measurement for the Iowa DOT and contractors. The thickness incentive can be as much as 3% of the concrete contact unit price and the disincentive can be as severe as remove and replace. This study evaluated the potential of the MIT device for PCC pavement thickness quality assurance. The limited testing indicates the unit is sufficiently repeatable and accurate enough to replace core drilling as the thickness measurement method. Further study is needed to statistically establish the single user and multi-user/device precision as well as establish an appropriate sampling protocol and PWL specification.
