About the research

Abstract: The CP Tech Center is developing a manual to help project and field engineers, mix designers, technicians, material experts, and construction supervisors and foremen achieve desired concrete pavement performance characteristics through an integrated systems approach to concrete pavement construction. The manual will include information about why and how to use state-of-the-art performance prediction technologies during materials selection, mixture design, mixture verification, and pavement construction; a decision tree or matrix; and a thorough, easy-to-use troubleshooting reference.
