ACCEPTANCE SAMPLING PLANS FOR RIGID PAVEMENT THICKNESS

IN 1967, NEW YORK STATE INITIATED STUDIES OF QUALITY ASSURANCE FOR PORTLAND CEMENT CONCRETE. THE ULTIMATE GOAL IS TO INSTITUTE A QUALITY ASSURANCE PROGRAM IN NEW YORK STATE FOR ALL CONCRETE PROPERTIES. WHILE FOR SOME CONCRETE PROPERTIES SUCH A PROGRAM REQUIRES EXTENSIVE PREPARATORY STUDIES, HISTORICAL DATA AVAILABLE FOR CONCRETE PAVEMENTS CAN BE USED IN A FIRST STEP TOWARD THIS GOAL. THE SHORTCOMINGS OF THE PRESENT SAMPLING PROCEDURE FOR INSPECTING CONCRETE PAVEMENT THICKNESS ARE EXPLAINED, AND TWO CONSIDERABLE MORE EFFICIENT ACCEPTANCE SAMPLING PLANS ARE DEVELOPED. THESE SAMPLING PLANS TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION PRODUCER'S AND CONSUMER'S RISKS, THE NATURE OF THE PRODUCT, ITS CRITICALITY, AND THE AVAILABLE HISTORICAL DATA. OPERATING CHARACTERISTIC CURVES ARE GIVEN FOR BOTH THE PRESENT INSPECTION PROCEDURE AND THE DERIVED SAMPLING PLANS. /AUTHOR/
