Design and Construction of Pcc Pavements Volume II: Design Features and Practices That Influence Performance of Pavements

Research/Reference: useful for researchers doing further work in the pavement area as well as those developing improved testing and design procedures. Includes documents of historical value.

Primary Topic: Pavement Data Collection

Description: A study has been conducted to evaluate and analyze portland cement concrete (PCC) pavements in order to develop recommendations for the design and construction of long-lived concrete pavements. It involved a detailed evaluation and analysis of the PCC pavement data in the Long-Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) database using statistical techniques to determine the design features and construction practices that have a beneficial effect on long-term performance.
