Enter the poured thickness (in) and the compaction factor into the Asphalt Compaction Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Asphalt Compaction.

## Asphalt Compaction Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Asphalt Compaction.

AC = T - T*CF

Variables:

- AC is the Asphalt Compaction (inches of compaction)
- T is the poured thickness (in)
- CF is the compaction factor

To calculate the asphalt compaction, subtract the poured thickness times the compaction factor from the poured thickness.

## How to Calculate Asphalt Compaction?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Asphalt Compaction.

- First, determine the poured thickness (in).
- Next, determine the compaction factor.
- Next, gather the formula from above = AC = T – T*CF.
- Finally, calculate the Asphalt Compaction.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

poured thickness (in) = 15

compaction factor = .23

AC = T – T*CF** **= ?
