Hi, what could be the best tests to verify the quality of the asphalt? New asphalt was placed 5 months ago but not open to real traffic yet. Client is concerned about tire marks are left on the asphalt. These marks are from steering the wheels without movement. Asphalt is PG 60/80 with aggregate size 20 mm. I am located in Japan and it is summer now. Temperature in a hot day goes up to 32 C (90 F) easily. We told the client that once real traffic starts and asphalt ages, this issue will be minimized/disappear. However, he is not convinced and we need to proof that the placed asphalt is OK. Sorry for if these questions are too amateur. I am not an asphalt guy so any input will be appreciated. Attached is a photo of one of the tire marks left on the asphalt recently. Thanks !
