Performance Improvement of High Early Strength (HES) Concrete for Pavement Replacement Slabs

The first objective of the proposed research is to identify concrete mixture combinations, slab base­ restraint and placement conditions that can reduce the risk of early-age cracking potential of concrete pavement repair slabs for Florida Department of Transportation projects. The second objective is to quantify the benefits of different methods for reducing cracking potential and provide corresponding recommendations to the Florida Department of Transportation for specification changes.
