HANDBOOK OF APPLICATIONS OF STATISTICAL CONCEPTS TO THE HIGHWAY INDUSTRY. PART I-INITIAL COMPUTATIONS AND APPLICATIONS

THIS IS PART I OF A THREE-PART HANDBOOK DEALING WITH PRACTICAL CONCEPTS IN THE FIELD OF STATISTICS AND WITH THEIR APPLICATIONS IN THE CONTROL OF MATERIALS AND PROCEDURES IN HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION. THIS FIRST PART PRESENTS INTRODUCTORY EXPLANATIONS RELATING TO GENERAL PRINCIPLES OF STATISTICS THAT WILL BE USEFUL TO TECHNICIANS IN HIGHWAY ENGINEERING AND TO PRODUCERS OF MATERIALS. THE PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS OF THESE PRINCIPLES ARE SHOWN BY NUMERICAL EXAMPLES THAT ARE WORKED OUT FULLY. THE TERMS AND UNITS OF MEASUREMENTS ARE THOSE IN COMMON USE IN HIGHWAY WORK AND THE VALUES USED IN THE EXAMPLES ARE APPROXIMATELY THE SAME AS WOULD BE OBTAINED DURING CONSTRUCTION OPERATIONS. THE IMPORTANCE OF OBTAINING SAMPLES FOR TESTING BY THE USE OF CONTROL CHARTS IS ILLUSTRATED. /MR&D/
