STATISTICAL SPECIFICATIONS IN BITUMINOUS CONCRETE HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION

THE NEED FOR STATISTICALLY ORIENTED ACCEPTANCE PLANS BY HIGHWAY DEPARTMENTS, AND FOR CONTROL PROCEDURES BY CONTRACTORS IS EVIDENT IN THE INCREASED DISCUSSION GIVEN THESE MATTERS IN HIGHWAY-ORIENTED MEETINGS FROM COAST TO COAST. ALTHOUGH SOME STATISTICAL SPECIFICATIONS ARE USED IN THE HIGHWAY INDUSTRY AT PRESENT, MANY MORE ARE NEEDED. THE DELAY IN ADOPTING THESE PROCEDURES HAS STEMMED FROM A RELUCTANCE ON THE PART OF HIGHWAY AGENCIES, BOTH FEDERAL AND STATE, TO PART WITH THEIR TRADITIONAL METHODS AND THE RELUCTANCE OF CONTRACTORS TO UNDERTAKE CONTROL OF THEIR OWN PROCESSES. THE STEPS BEING TAKEN BY MOST HIGHWAY AGENCIES IN IMPLEMENTING STATISTICAL SPECIFICATIONS AS WELL AS MOST OF THE IMPORTANT ITEMS IN ASPHALTIC CONCRETE SPECIFICATIONS ARE MENTIONED. /AUTHOR/
