Guidelines for Establishing and Maintaining Construction Quality Databases

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: Materials-Concrete

Description: Construction quality databases contain a variety of construction-related data that characterize the quality of materials and workmanship. The primary purpose of construction quality databases is to help State highway agencies (SHAs) assess the quality of materials production and placement, including the establishment of pay factors for quality. A secondary purpose is to support other agency activities, including performance analysis and improvements to current standards and specifications. These databases have become a critical component in construction quality assurance (QA) programs.
