Description

The primary focus of this guide is pavement construction. Modern slipform paving techniques and time-proven formed construction procedures are highlighted. Quality control, quality assurance, and construction inspection, as well as the environmental, economic, and societal benefits of concrete pavement, are also presented.

This guide briefly reviews all aspects of concrete pavement construction for highways and, to some extent, local roads, streets, and airfields. Intended for field and office personnel, this guide provides a background on design issues that relate to construction and reviews material selection.

Note that the materials, processes, quality control measures, and inspections described in this guide should be tested, monitored, or performed as applicable only by individuals holding the appropriate ACI certifications or equivalent.

Keywords: concrete pavement; concrete pavement construction; concrete paving; fixed-form paving; paving materials; slipform paving; sustainability.
