Reducing Portland Cement Content and Improving Concrete Durability

The objectives of this project are to: (1) conduct a laboratory testing program to investigate an effective method to achieve optimized aggregate gradation (OAG) in Class I pavement concrete and Class IV concrete, (2) conduct a laboratory testing program to evaluate the effects of OAG and minimizing paste content (MPC) on properties of fresh and hardened concrete, and (3) conduct a laboratory testing program to evaluate the effects of using Type I/L cement instead of Type I/II cement on properties of fresh and hardened concrete.
