Description: Miscellaneous Paper
Abstract: The investigation reported herein was conducted to review methods and equipment being used by industry in the construction of pavements and to recommend changes to Corps of Engineers guide specifications to incorporate new methods and equipment. Literature reviews were conducted, and visits were made to construction sites and equipment manufacturers. Observations and measurements were taken on pavements constructed with slip-form pavers, and a separate report was written on the results. As a result of the overall investigation the pertinent guide specifications will be revised to allow the use of slip-form pavers for portland cement concrete pavements in airfield construction and to add methods of testing for quality of mixture and for determining mixing times. The results of the investigation also indicate that guide specifications should be changed by eliminating requirements for specific equipment and methods and adding requirements for an end product based on methods of testing to determine the quality of the end product.
