Project description

The research project involved an extensive campaign of sampling and testing carried out by the MoDOT and Missouri S&T team to evaluate fresh and mechanical properties of the concrete as well as shrinkage and key durability characteristics. Short-term and long-term performance of the concrete is evaluated using embedded sensors to monitor variations in temperature and deformation in the pavement over time.
