Ensuring Durability of Concrete Paving Mixtures-Part II: Test Methods
Primary Topic: Materials-Concrete
Description: A companion Tech Brief (Ensuring Durability of Concrete Paving Mixtures-Part I: Mechanisms and Mitigation) describes the mechanisms responsible for materials-related distress (MRD) that can compromise the durability of concrete and outlines strategies to improve the durability of concrete paving mixtures. This Tech Brief builds on that Tech Brief, presenting approaches for testing constituent materials and concrete mixtures to assess resistance to various types of MRDs.
