How much does density matter?

The normal target in-place density on a “dense” hot-mix asphalt pavement is 92 to 93 percent of Gmm (or 7 to 8 percent air voids). If a pavement has low density (usually defined as less than 92 percent of Gmm), the air voids are interconnected and premature pavement distresses can result.
