A pavement project may be envisioned as a three-link chain, consisting of materials, design, and construction. The weakest link governs the performance of the system - therefore engineers must be knowledgeable about all three aspects as well as their interactions. Concrete Pavement Design, Construction, and Performance is organized in much the same way as a pavement construction project. First, different alternatives for concrete pavement solutions are outlined and the desired performance and behaviour parameters are identified. Next, appropriate materials are selected and the desired concrete proportions determined. Once the materials are known the design can be completed. Finally, the necessary construction steps for translating the design into a durable facility are provided. Pavement management, maintenance, rehabilitation, and overlays are also addressed.
