Project description

The most effective way to prevent or minimize premature distresses is to identify the mechanisms of distresses, develop appropriate special provisions to existing specifications or special specifications, and/or modify existing design standards. In this study, focus will be placed on identifying mechanisms of selected premature distress types primarily through field testing and data analysis. Once the mechanisms are identified, modifications will be suggested to the existing design standards and specifications.
