This ACI publication is a collection of over 40 papers from 10 different countries examining concrete in transportation-related applications. The combined expertise of representatives from industry, universities and government agencies is brought together, providing information and ideas on the design, use and performance of concrete in six different transportation-related areas. These six strategic areas include: concrete pavements, railroad systems, transit systems, concrete repair, bridges and marine structures. Concrete in Transportation will give the reader valuable information and substantial insight into the problems and solutions inherent in concrete and the infrastructure.
