Developed for Caterpillar® by Seatech Publications, the Amplitude Calculator is a productivity tool that helps road construction professionals determine the proper amplitude setting for their asphalt compactor to maximize compaction efficiency.
The tool processes user inputs to provide a recommended amplitude setting. Contractors using Cat asphalt compactors can also get instruction on how to set up their particular model/vibratory system to provide the recommended output.
The tool operates in two modes. End Result mode is based upon North American paving and compaction practices.
Method Specification mode is based upon specifications created by the Central Laboratory for Roads and Bridges (France.)
