Abstract
The use of the Superpave Gyratory Compactor (SGC) for asphalt mixtures design is increasingly common in many countries. Although in Spain the Marshall compactor is still used, the possibility of adopting the gyratory compactor is currently being evaluated. This is the reason why this study is focused on evaluating the influence of these compaction procedures in volumetric and mechanical properties of asphalt mixtures. Two representative mixtures of the most used in Spain have been selected. Spec...
