Effective Quality Assurance for Concrete Paving Operations: Best Practices for Concrete Pavements

This tech brief looks at the elements needed to implement an effective quality assurance (QA) program for concrete paving operations. The benefit of a good QA program far outweighs the costs for both the agency and contractors. The topic of QA can be intimidating, but all of us make quality-based judgments in our lives every day. This tech brief aims to outline the basics of an effective quality system for concrete pavements using new technologies. Recent years have seen some major advances in the concrete testing arena. Several new tests are now available that are more practical, faster, more economical, easier to implement in the field, and measure properties that are related to actual concrete and pavement quality.
