The purpose of the Clean Water Act (CWA) is to preserve the benefits and functions of the nation's aquatic ecosystems. Those ecosystems include items such as flood protection, wildlife habitats, and water quality. This course covers the requirements of Section 404 of the CWA specifically as they pertain...

This course covers the fundamental concepts related to compaction, including safety, soil basics, and basic operation of gauges, as well as introduction to compaction theory. This course is not intended to be used for certification purposes, but it instead intended to be a primer for those technicians...

This module covers how a concrete mixture changes from a plastic state to become a solid concrete slab in a relatively short period of time. Central to this transformation is a complex process called hydration, an irreversible series of chemical reactions between water and cement. This module is part...

This module covers construction operations and establishes important ties to design and materials. This module is part of a curriculum from the "Integrated Materials and Construction Practices for Concrete Pavement" manual developed through the National Concrete Pavement Technology Center at Iowa State...

This module covers pavement design and subgrade concepts as they relate to materials and construction. It does not provide sufficient detail to actually design or evaluate a design. It covers the primary goal of pavement design, which is to provide a pavement that is safe, long lasting, cost effective...

Cracks are not a problem as long as they are controlled through jointing; ideally the concrete will crack below the saw joint to relieve the stress. Uncontrolled random cracks are not aesthetically acceptable and can reduce ride quality, durability, and particularly load transfer. Early cracking in...

This module covers the properties of fresh concrete needed to produce high-quality, long lasting pavements and how to monitor these properties. This module is part of a curriculum from the "Integrated Materials and Construction Practices for Concrete Pavement" manual developed through the National...

The materials used in portland cement concrete (PCC) play an extremely valuable role in the performance of the concrete. This training covers both the non-reactive and reactive materials used in PCC. This would include the aggregates, curing compound, reinforcement, and the materials that are chemically...

Durability as a property of hardened concrete is essential for long-lasting pavements. This workshop discusses factors that contribute to durable concrete and covers permeability, frost resistance, sulfate resistance, alkali silica attack, and a brief look at abrasion resistance. This module is part...

The materials used in portland cement concrete (PCC) play an extremely valuable role in the performance of the concrete. This training covers the incompatibilities of materials used in PCC. Although certain materials may be perfectly acceptable on their own, when they are combined they are not compatible...
