Study Description

Background:
In 2008 and 2009 the Iowa Department of Transportation and the EERC hosted an annual workshop on Intelligent Compaction for Soils and HMA. As part of the workshop a roadmap for addressing the research and educational needs for integrating intelligent compaction technologies into practice was developed. An ongoing forum is needed to provide broad national leadership that can rapidly address the needs and challenges facing STAs with the adoption of intelligent compaction technologies. The vision for the road map was to identify and prioritize action items that accelerate and effectively implement IC technologies into earthwork and HMA construction practices. Coupled with the IC technologies are advancements with in situ testing technologies, data analysis and analytical models to better understand performance of geotechnical systems supported by compacted fill, software and wireless data transfer, GPS and 3D digital plan integration, new specification development, and risk assessment. For information on the first two workshops please refer to the workshop reports at the EERC website: http://www.ceer.iastate.edu/tticc/
Objectives:
The proposed project is for the establishment of a pooled fund for state representatives to continue this collaborative effort regarding intelligent compaction. The TTICC will be open to any state desiring to be a part of new developments in intelligent compaction leading to the implementation of new technologies which will lead to longer life pavements through the use of an integrated system of emerging innovative technologies. Two workshop meetings will be conducted each year. One of the meetings will be in person and is anticipated to occur during fall. The location of the in-person workshop meetings will be determined by the Executive Committee and moved regionally each year to participating states. The second meeting will be a webinar and occur in early spring hosted by the EERC.
Scope of Work:
All efforts by the TTICC will be focused towards these project activities and deliverables:

* Identify and instigate needed research projects
* Develop pooled fund research projects for solutions to intelligent compaction issues
* Act as a technology exchange forum for the participating entities
* Be a forum for states and researchers to share their experience with IC technologies
* Identify and guide the development and funding of technology transfer materials such as tech brief summaries and training materials from research results
* Review the IC Road Map as updated annually and provide feedback to the FHWA, industry, states, and the EERC on those initiatives
* Provide research ideas to funding agencies
* Include current activities and deliverables of the pooled fund on the TTICC website
* Maintain pooled fund project website with current activities and deliverables
* Contribute to a technology transfer newsletter on intelligent compaction research activities every six months in cooperation with the EERC
* Post minutes to the website following web meetings
* Post a report following each in-person workshop to the website
Comments:
10 states @ $7,000 commitment for one participant with $2,000 for each additional. Contribution includes expenses for annual workshop and web-based meeting.
