Fugro Roadware offers pavement coring surveys to clients. This type of analysis involves the in-situ measurement and extraction of asphalt and highway materials for laboratory testing. Core samples are one of the best ways to accurately determine the in-place design of a highway and identify the subgrade materials. Pavement coring helps to determine the bond quality between pavement layers and the drainage characteristics of a pavement. It can also be used to determine the depth and severity of cracking in pavement. The core samples collected by Fugro can be used to test the rutting resistance, frictional properties, and durability of the wearing course in pavement. Materials testing can and are used to determine the level of compaction, asphalt content, aggregate gradations, and other predictors of pavement service life.
