Abstract:
More and more today’s engineers are finding a growing need to develop and implement construction specifications that are characteristic of the distress mechanisms apparent in the performance of pavements. Such specifications will inherently motivate and empower contractors to seek for improved methods to narrow the deviation of quality and enhance the potential to construct longer lasting pavements at a lower cost.
