RAPID TEST METHODS FOR FIELD CONTROL OF HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION

RESEARCH WAS CONDUCTED TO DETERMINE THE STATE OF THE ART IN THE DEVELOPMENT, NEED, AND USE OF RAPID TEST METHODS. THE FIRST PHASE COMPRISES A LITERATURE SURVEY OF CURRENT PRACTICES IN QUALITY CONTROL AND ACCEPTANCE TESTING, ALONG WITH A STUDY USING STATISTICAL METHODS TO ASSESS THE TIME LIMITS FOR RAPID TESTS. THE SECOND PHASE IS CONCERNED WITH THE DEVELOPMENT AND EVALUATION OF NEW RAPID TEST METHODS OR PRINCIPLES TO SELECT THOSE WORTHY OF FURTHER INVESTIGATION. THIRTY-EIGHT STATE HIGHWAY DEPARTMENTS PARTICIPATED IN THE STUDY, AND INTERVIEWS WERE CONDUCTED WHEN APPROPRIATE. THE SECOND PHASE OF THE STUDY APPLIED TO RAPID TEST METHODS FOR ASPHALT CONTENT DETERMINATION, COMPACTION CONTROL, GRADATION OF SEVERAL TYPES OF AGGREGATE, DENSITY OF BASE COURSE MATERIALS AND SOILS, AND MOISTURE CONTENT. THE RESULTS OF ALL TESTS ARE APPENDED. TN ADDITION TO 226 TEXTUAL REFERENCES, THE REPORT CONTAINS AN ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY OF 105 REPORTS AND ARTICLES ON RAPID TEST METHODS. /AUTHOR/
