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...

This module discusses mix design and mix proportioning. Mix design is the process of choosing the characteristics we are looking for in the concrete mixture. Mix proportioning, on the other hand, involves taking the information provided by the mix design process and using that information to determine...

This module covers an overview of quality control/quality assurance (QC/QA) concepts and definitions. It does not provide sufficient detail to actually develop a comprehensive QC/QA plan. This module is part of a curriculum from the "Integrated Materials and Construction Practices for Concrete Pavement"...

This module covers using the information available in the Integrated Materials and Construction Practices for Concrete Pavement (IMCP) Manual to identify and diagnose problems related to concrete pavement pre- and post-construction and to develop a plan to address the problems. This module is part...

This course covers the corrosion effects on transportation structures, in particular, reinforcing steel, reinforced concrete, and structural steel and girders.. This course explains what corrosion is, as well as how it applies to, and appears in, highway structures. Concrete and steel members are discussed...
