Jointed Plain Concrete Design and Construction Review

The Project objectives are (1) To review available literature and field performance of various concrete pavement designs, especially with regard to joint and sealant systems, to determine any possible beneficial changes to current practice. (2) To develop optimized concrete mix designs incorporating larger top size aggregate and pea gravel to provide good workability at lower cement contents and resist thermal effects. (3) To construct and evaluate appropriate JPC test sections to resolve any performance issues with regard to potential changes in design or construction.
