DEVELOP MORE SIGNIFICANT AND RAPID TEST PROCEDURES FOR QUALITY ASSURANCE CHEMICAL ANALYSIS PROCEDURES

THE OBJECTIVE IS TO DEVELOP NEW INSTRUMENTS AND PROCEDURES FOR THE RAPID FIELD ANALYSIS OF HIGHWAY MATERIALS, INCLUDING PAINTS, CONCRETE, ASPHALT, AND ADDITIVES AND ADMIXTURES. SPECTRAL-TYPE METHODS SUCH AS X-RAY DIFFRACTION AND INFRARED WILL BE EMPHASIZED IN THE ANALYSIS OF WHOLE PAINTS AND SIMILAR MATERIALS; WHILE NUCLEAR METHODS, MICROWAVE, GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY, AND ATOMIC ABSORPTION METHODS WILL BE STUDIED FOR COMPLETE CONSTITUENT ANALYSIS AND FOR DETECTING ADDITIVES IN ORGANIC SUBSTANCES AND CEMENTS. CHEMICAL ANALYTIC PROCEDURES FOR CEMENT CONTENT OF HARDENED CONCRETE, FOR WHOLE PAINT COMPOSITION, AND FOR ADDITIVES IN ASPHALT ARE SUGGESTED STUDIES.
