Figure 11. Bar Chart. Track 11 (BE) unphased subtrack and problem statement chart.
Track 11 (BE) unphased subtrack and problem statement chart.The horizontal bar chart in this figure shows the problem statements in track 11, Concrete Pavement Business Systems and Economics (BE), grouped by subtrack. Because this track is unphased, no time phasing is shown. There are five subtracks in track 11: (1) Concrete Pavement Research and Technology Management and Implementation; (2) Concrete Pavement Economics and Life Cycle Costs; (3) Contracting and Incentives for Concrete Pavement Work; (4) Technology Transfer and Publications for Concrete Pavement Best Practices; and (5) Concrete Pavement Decisions with Environmental Impact. Subtrack 1 contains two problem statements: Problem Statement BE 1.1. The CP Road Map Research Management Plan Administrative Support Group; and Problem Statement BE 1.2. Accelerated Evaluation and Implementation of Concrete Pavement Research and Technology. Subtrack 2 contains five problem statements: Problem Statement BE 2.1. Achieving Sustainability with Concrete Pavements; Problem Statement BE 2.2. The Economic and Systemic Impacts of Concrete Pavement Mix-of-Fixes Strategies; Problem Statement BE 2.3. Advanced Concrete Pavement Life Cycle Cost Methods That Include User Costs; Problem Statement BE 2.4. Optimizing Concrete Pavement Life Cycle Decisions; and Problem Statement BE 2.5. Concrete Pavement Economic Analysis Series. Subtrack 3 contains two problem statements: Problem Statement BE 3.1. Innovative Contracting Methods that Address Performance-Based Maintenance and Warranties and Problem Statement BE 3.2. The Next Generation of Incentive-Based Concrete Pavement Construction Specifications. Subtrack 4 contains four problem statements: Problem Statement BE 4.1. Concrete Pavement Best Practices Manual; Problem Statement BE 4.2. Accelerated Technology Transfer and Rapid Education Programs for the Future Concrete Paving Workforce; Problem Statement BE 4.3. Concrete Pavement Engineering Compendium; and Problem Statement BE 4.4. Concrete Pavement White Paper Series. Subtrack 5 contains three problem statements: Problem Statement BE 5.1. The Impact of Concrete Pavement Reflectance, Absorption, and Emittance on the Urban Heat Island Effect; Problem Statement BE 5.2. Strategic and Technical Issues Related to the Design and Construction of Truck-Only Concrete Pavements; and Problem Statement BE 5.3.
