This report is the third volume of a four-volume set of reports presenting the results of a study to further the development of performance-related specifications for portland cement concrete pavement construction. Using the recommended performance-related specifications, a highway agency can upon construction predict the performance of a pavement and forecast the pavements life-cycle costs. The benefits to the agency from using such specifications can be significant. This report contains supporting documentation for the study, including information on the performance prediction models used in the specifications and on the typical variabilities associated with acceptance quality characteristics. This report will be of interest to engineers concerned with quality asssurance, specifications, and construction of concrete pavements.
Sufficient copies of this report are being distributed to provide a minimum of 3 copies to each FHWA resource center and division office, and 10 copies 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), 5285 Port Royal Road, Springfield, Virginia 22161.
