Project description

The objective of this study is to focus on the successful deployment of performance engineered mixtures. This will involve building off the foundational work that Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the "PEM Champion States" have done, with emphasis on implementation, education and training, adjusting the specification values to relate accurately to good pavement performance in the field, and continued development of relating early age concrete properties to performance.
