This training is provided by the Transportation Curriculum Coordination Council (TCCC) in partnership with NHI to review integrated materials and construction practices for concrete pavement. The training was developed by the National Concrete Pavement Technology Center at Iowa State University. This training is recommended for the Transportation Curriculum Coordination Council levels III and IV. This course is primarily intended for inspectors and technicians.
This module covers how a concrete mixture changes from a plastic state to become a solid concrete slab in a relatively short period of time. Central to this transformation is a complex process called hydration, an irreversible series of chemical reactions between water and cement.
This module is part of a curriculum from the "Integrated Materials and Construction Practices for Concrete Pavement" manual developed through the National Concrete Pavement Technology Center at Iowa State University. The other Web-based training modules include:

This training is designed for FHWA, State, and local agencies and their industry counterparts involved in the process to assure that the mix design and proportioning of Portland cement concrete materials meet specification requirements and provide good, durable concrete. It is applicable to anyone desiring a better understanding of the mix design of Portland cement concrete.
