DETERMINATION OF STATISTICAL PARAMETERS FOR HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION

THIS WAS A 2 YEAR PROJECT TO DETERMINE THE RANGE AND MAGNITUDE OF VARIATIONS OF MEASURED CHARACTERISTICS OF AGGREGATE, AGGREGATE BASE COURSES, PORTLAND CEMENT CONCRETE AND BITUMINOUS MIXTURES USED IN HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION IN WEST. VA. DATA WAS OBTAINED FROM /1/ HISTORICAL RECORDS OF SATISFACTORILY CONSTRUCTED PROJECTS AND /2/ FROM STATISTICALLY DESIGNED EXPERIMENTAL PROJECTS OF CURRENT NORMAL CONSTRUCTION. THE AUTHORS ANALYZED THE DATA BY USE OF COMPUTERS AND CONCLUDED THAT' /1/ THE AMOUNT OF SAMPLING AND TESTING COULD BE REDUCED IN SEVERAL INSTANCES, /2/ IMPROVED SAMPLING METHODS WOULD MATERIALLY DECREASE VARIATIONS OF MEASURED VALUES FOR SEVERAL CHARACTERISTICS, /3/ ANALYSIS OF STANDARD DEVIATIONS INDICATED CLOSE COMPLIANCE WITH CURRENT SPECIFICATIONS, AND /4/ STATISTICAL TYPE SPECIFICATIONS MIGHT PERMIT ACCEPTANCE OF BORDERLINE MATERIAL AT A REDUCED PRICE. /AUTHOR/
