In this paper we developed density measurement equipment for Asphalt Pavement based on the electromagnetic capacitance. This kind of Non-Nuclear Density Gauges technology and products is used or studied in USA, Finland, Sweden as standardization of authorized method for pavement density measurement. Effective permitivity of pavement asphalt is characterized in electromagnetic capacitance by the asphalt material, mixed ratio, and harden grade of pavement asphalt. We can get a density value of asphalt by replacing value of electromagnetic capacitance with standard density value and characteristic transformation curve. We are conformed that measurement data according to temperature, humidity, and real field asphalt of our density measurement equipment can be a precise value.
