MEASUREMENT AND SPECIFICATION OF CONSTRUCTION QUALITY, VOLUME II: MATERIALS TESTING AND FIELD DATA

This study consisted of testing six projects: three hot-mix asphalt concrete (HMAC) and three portland cement concrete (PCC). The primary objectives were to: (1) determine how current quality control test results vary in construction projects and how this variability affects pavement performance, (2) assess the suitability of current methods of quantifying materials and construction quality and quality variability, and (3) develop and improve methods that minimize current shortcomings. Volume I of this report contains information about the data analysis. Volume II provides information about the data collected and use of the ground penetrating radar to determine thickness of the pavement. Volume II also contains univariate data on each of the tests performed on samples taken from the six projects in this study.
