Taking everything into consideration, pavements are called upon to resist probably not only a s severe but also as great a variety of destructive forces as any type of structure in which this versatile engineering material- concrete-is used. It is the purpose of this paper to discuss the special characteristics which pavement concrete must possess in order to offer the maximum resistance to these destructive agencies as well as to indicate how these special characteristics are affected by the materials and methods of fabrication employed. The paper will deal entirely with the quality of the concrete itself and will not touch upon the structural design of the pavement slab which is a separate though related problem.
