Abstract:This paper presents a rational approach used for the evaluation of inplace concrete pavement with flexural strength requirements. During the construction of a concrete paving project at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas, Nevada, data was developed from the testing of over 450 specimens of concrete beams, cylinders, and cores representing samples from nearly 170 locations. Hexural, compressive, and splitting tensile strength testing was performed on these samples obtained from locations where comparison between the different types of strength tests was possible. Relationships between this data were evaluated and a rational approach to the evaluation of in-place concrete for compliance with flexural strength requirements was developed. This approach that begins with trial batch data and includes cast and cored specimen, could be applied to other concrete paving projects with similar concerns.
