The National Ready Mixed Concrete Association’s Research Laboratory has partnered in a Pooled Fund Study (PFS) sponsored by the Indiana Department of Transportation. The PFS is titled “Performance Guidelines for Durability.”
The goals of the study are:
- Evaluation of existing permeability (transport) test procedures
- Development of new or improvement of existing test procedures to evaluate permeability (transport) properties of concrete
- Correlation between permeability (transport) properties and measured material response to existing durability tests
- Develop guidelines to relate permeability, exposure conditions and field performance for use in specifications and quality control processes.
