This training was prepared by the Transportation Curriculum Coordination Council (TCCC) in partnership with NHI to provide guidance on critical concrete pavement preservation issues. The training was sponsored by the FHWA and developed by the National Concrete
Pavement Technology Center at Iowa State University. This training is offered by NHI, and we would like to give special recognition to the TCCC for their efforts. This course is recommended for the Transportation Curriculum Coordination Council levels I -
This module describes recommended procedures for surface restoration of Portland cement concrete (PCC) pavements, specifically diamond grinding and diamond grooving operations.
This module is part of the curriculum from the Concrete Pavement Preservation Series (FHWA-NHI-131126) which presents current guidelines and recommendations for the design, construction, and selection of cost-effective concrete pavement preservation strategies.
The other Web-based training modules include:
FHWA-NHI-131126A Preventive Maintenance and Pavement Preservation Concepts
FHWA-NHI-131126B Concrete Pavement Evaluation
FHWA-NHI-131126C Slab Stabilization and Slab Jacking
FHWA-NHI-131126D Partial-Depth Repairs
FHWA-NHI-131126E Full-Depth Repairs
FHWA-NHI-131126F Retrofitted Edge Drains
FHWA-NHI-131126G Load Transfer Restoration
FHWA-NHI-131126I Joint Resealing and Crack Sealing
FHWA-NHI-131126J Strategy Selection
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
- Differentiate between diamond grinding and diamond grooving and list the benefits of each
- Identify appropriate blade spacing dimensions for grinding and grooving
- Describe recommended construction procedures
- Identify typical construction problems and remedies
The intended audience for the Concrete Pavement Preservation Web-based Training is quite diverse, and includes design engineers, quality control personnel, contractors, suppliers, technicians, and trades people. While the course is aimed at those who have
some familiarity with concrete pavements and pavement preservation, it should also be of value to those that are new to the field. In addition, our target audience could be geographically dispersed, in need of immediate training or information, or not have
access to travel funds.
