Site Geotechnical undertook asphalt coring within one of Melbournes busiest freeways to obtain asphalt samples. Cores are an integral part of any pavement investigation or survey.
The primary purpose of coring a roadway during the design phase of a project is to verify the existing pavement structure conditions and depths, and to use that information to select an appropriate treatment or confirm the adequacy of a proposed resurfacing method.
It has been found that an average crew of 2-3 members using a portable coring rig can retrieve 10 to 15 cores depending on the type of roadway they are working on (we recovered 26 in one shift).
