A look at longitudinal joint ... - Asphalt magazine

A look at longitudinal joint construction methods. By Geoff Dillon. In an asphalt pavement, longitudinal joints occur where one paving lane (also called a “mat”) is placed adjacent to an earlier placed paving lane. The localized area of the longitudinal joint is more difficult to compact and, as a result, has higher in-place air voids ...

Take the level to the back of the screed and lay it transversely across the joint. Use a tape measure or folding ruler to measure the distance between the existing mat—the one you’re matching—and the base of the level. That measurement is your fluff factor. That measurement must reflect the exact amount you’ve built in for compaction.
