Materials-Related Distress: Paste Best Practices for Jointed Concrete Pavements
Primary Topic: Materials-Concrete
Description: The purpose of this tech brief is to provide pavement engineers with information to help them specify and choose materials that will last for the desired lifetime of the pavement. This tech brief focuses on considerations for the cementitious matrix with respect to paste-related distress mechanisms. Aggregate-related mechanisms are discussed in a separate parallel tech brief (Taylor and Wang 2015).
