This report is one volume of a three-volume set of reports presenting the results of a study to further the development of performance-related specifications for portland cement concrete pavement construction. Laboratory testing was conducted to fill several gaps in the knowledge of portland cement concrete. Drawing upon the results of the laboratory testing, the underlying theory of performance-related specifications was considerably extended, and a prototype performance-related specification was developed. Also, a computer program was developed for use with the specification to assist in simulation and in generating pay adjustments. This report contains two appendixes which will be of interest to engineers concerned with quality assurance, specifications, and construction of concrete pavements.
Sufficient copies of this report are being distributed to provide one copy to each FHWA regional and division office and to each State highway agency.
Direct distribution is being made to the division offices. Additional copies for the public are available from the National Technical Information Service (NTIS), United States Department of Commerce, 5285 Port Royal Road, Springfield, Virginia 22361.
