Early Practitioner Resources

Early practitioner resources on concrete pavements

 

Real-life concrete pavement systems frequently throw at early practitioners a level of complexity beyond what standard textbook scenarios describe. Students and early practitioners might need help in understanding key issues in the design, construction, and maintenance of concrete pavements.

We have put together a curated list of CP Tech Center publications, as well as links to other concrete organizations’ educational repositories, to provide early practitioners with easy access to the fundamental knowledge necessary to make optimal pavement-related decisions. Even experienced concrete practitioners can benefit from this resource list covering not only tried-and-true best practice for concrete applications but also more recent research and technological innovations.

For links to additional resources from CP Tech’s extensive library, see the Publications section.
