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 the properties of fresh concrete needed to produce high-quality, long lasting pavements and how to monitor these properties.

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:

FHWA-NHI-134075 TCCC Hardened Concrete Properties - Durability

FHWA-NHI-134084 TCCC Fundamentals of Materials Used for Concrete Pavements

FHWA-NHI-134085 TCCC Incompatibility in Concrete Pavement Systems

FHWA-NHI-134087 TCCC Mix Design Principles

FHWA-NHI-134095 TCCC Early Age Cracking

FHWA-NHI-134096 TCCC Basics of Cement Hydration

FHWA-NHI-134098 TCCC Construction of Concrete Pavements

FHWA-NHI-134100 TCCC QCQA for Concrete Pavements

FHWA-NHI-134101 TCCC Design of Pavement

FHWA-NHI-134102 TCCC Troubleshooting for Concrete Pavements


Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • List the main properties of fresh concrete
  • Describe what affects each property
  • Recognize how to monitor these properties through concrete testing


This training is designed for FHWA, State, and local agencies and their industry counterparts involved in the process to assure that the properties of a concrete mixture provide ease in placement, ease of consolidation, and long lasting pavement. It is applicable to anyone desiring a better understanding of the properties of Portland cement concrete.
