FEDERALLY COORDINATED PROGRAM OF RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT IN HIGHWAY TRANSPORTATION. VOLUME 4, IMPROVED MATERIALS UTILIZATION AND DURABILITY
The program of materials research is primarily designed to concentrate on a limited number of problems in order to bring about significant pay-offs within a short period of time. Another criterion is the need to be responsive to the public's growing concern with environmental pollution. The highway industry can make a significant positive contribution toward alleviating this problem, particularly in our major cities, by devision procedures for converting industrial and household wastes into useful highway products. The FCP projects provide a coordinated effort in bringing about short range gains in materials research as well as continued development of new basic knowledge needed for long range improvements.
