COURSE DESCRIPTION: Improving and maintaining the quality of concrete is an important aspect of keeping pavements safe and long lasting. This training provides participants with an overview of the entire Portland cement concrete (PCC) paving and restoration process: setting forms, mixing, hauling, curing and applicable repair …
Portland Cement Flexural Strength Flexural strength (sometimes called the modulus of rupture) is actually a measure of tensile strength in bending. PCC flexural strength testing is carried out on a 40 x 40 x 160 mm (1.57-inch x 1.57-inch x 6.30-inch) cement …
Portland cement concrete (PCC) has been used to resurface existing pavements since 1913. Historically, PCC resurfacing has been used less than asphalt resurfacing because of the higher initial costs and construction complexity.
Portland cement concrete (PCC) pavement, or rigid pavement as it is sometimes called, refers to the rigid concrete layer of the pavement structure that is in direct contact with the traffic. Typical concrete is composed of coarse aggregate (crushed stone and gravel), fine aggregate such as sand, portland cement and water.
Plain and reinforced portland cement concrete pavements will be measured and paid for at the Contract unit price per square yard for the pertinent Portland Cement Concrete Pavement item. The square yard measurement will be computed on the basis of plan width and as-built length measured along the pavement center line.
Annual global production of portland cement concrete hovers around 3.8 million cubic meters (5 billion cubic yards) per year (Cement Association of Canada, 2002 ). In the U.S., rigid pavements are the largest single use of portland cement and portland cement concrete ( ACPA, 2002  ).
The pavement is opened to traffic after the specified curing period and when tests indicate that the concrete has reached the required strength. Immediately before the pavement is opened to public traffic, the shoulders are finished and the pavement is cleaned.

Portland cement concrete (PCC) pavements (or rigid pavements) consist of a PCC slab that is usually supported by a granular or stabilized base, and a subbase. In some cases the PCC slab may be overlaid with a layer of asphalt concrete.
Portland Cement Concrete Pavements Research Thermal Coefficient of Portland Cement Concrete What is it? All materials expand and contract to some extent as their temperatures rise or fall. The coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) is a measure of a material's expansion or contraction with temperature. Because the length changes associated with ...
