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. This training is recommended for the Transportation Curriculum Coordination Council levels II - IV.
This module discusses mix design and mix proportioning. Mix design is the process of choosing the characteristics we are looking for in the concrete mixture. Mix proportioning, on the other hand, involves taking the information provided by the mix design process and using that information to determine the actual proportions of ingredients in the mixture. This course discusses theoretical, laboratory, and field testing to determine the Portland cement concrete mix that will achieve the best possible durability, strength, constructability, economy, and uniformity.
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.
