Abstract:
The Concrete Pavement Technology Program (CPTP) is a national program of research, development, and technology transfer sponsored by the Federal Highway Administration. The focus of the program is on implementing improved methods of designing, constructing, evaluating, maintaining, and rehabilitating portland cement concrete (PCC) pavements in order to promote cost-effective designs and long-term performance for federal-aid highways. Research is conducted to address State highway agency, FHWA, industry, and academia needs. Innovative designs and improved methods are evaluated through demonstrations and field trials of high performance concrete pavements by the various State highway agencies. An extensive implementation effort is included to encourage early adoption of promising research results.
