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. It is the first training of its kind offered by NHI, and we would like to give special recognition to the TCCC for their efforts. This training is recommended for the Transportation Curriculum Coordination Council levels II - IV.
The materials used in Portland cement concrete play an extremely valuable role in the performance of the concrete. This training covers the incompatibilities of materials used in Portland cement concrete. Although certain materials may be perfectly acceptable on their own, when they are combined they are not compatible with each other. This can cause early stiffening, retardation, cracking, and the lack of a quality of air void system.
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 materials used in Portland cement concrete meet specification requirements and are compatible to provide good, durable concrete. It is applicable to anyone desiring a better understanding of the materials used in Portland cement concrete.
