QUALITY CONTROL FOR ROADWAY CONCRETE

DETAILED COMMENTARY IS PRESENTED ON THE PROVISIONAL RULES FOR THE PREPARATION AND SUPPLY OF ROADWAY CONCRETE, ED. 1961, ACCEPTED AND INTRODUCED BY MOST OF THE FEDERAL LANDER FOR INSPECTION PURPOSES, AS AMPLIFIED BY SUGGESTIONS IN THE LIGHT OF THE EXPERIENCE OF QUALITY CONTROL OFFICIALS. THUS, THE POSSIBILITIES ARE EXAMINED OF REVISING THE SPECIFICATION SCHEDULES AND THE ACTUAL CUBIC-METRE WEIGHTS SPECIFIED AND THE ENUMERATED TESTING EQUIPMENT REQUIRED BY INSPECTORS OF WORKS. IN QUALITY CONTROL (EITHER BY THE QUALITY PROTECTION ASSOCIATION, TRANSPORT ASSOCIATION FOR PRELIMINARY CHECKING OF WORKS CONTRACTS FOR THEIR MEMBERS, OR BY AUTHORIZED BUILDING MATERIALS ESTABLISHMENTS) A DISTINCTION IS MADE BETWEEN PRELIMINARY CONTROL OF THE WORKS SPECIFICATIONS, FIRST REVISION PROCEDURES AND CONTINUOUS WORKS CONTROL. THE FORMS TO BE USED ON SITE FOR SUMMARIZING THE SPECIFICATIONS AND THE SUITABILITY TESTS OF THE DIFFERENT CONCRETE GRADES, THE WORKS JOURNAL AND THE WEIGHING INSTRUCTIONS ARE ILLUSTRATED BY SAMPLES WITH EXAMPLES OF ENTRIES. THE SAME APPLIES FOR THE FIRST TESTING PROGRAM AND THE CONTINIOUS WORKS CONTROL IN REGARD TO THE TEST SHEETS WITH THE CONCRETE TEST RESULTS. /FG/RRL/
