Publication Details

The Effects of Higher Strength and Associated Concrete Properties on Pavement Performance 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: Rigid Pavement

Description: Report examines data on material properties and field performance to correlate the effects of higher strength concrete on pavement performance. Study concludes that higher strength concrete can lead to better control of spalling and cracking provided other design features and construction practices are followed for better performance.
