Construction quality control (QC)

ACBFS has been used as coarse aggregate in concrete pavements since at least the 1930s. Two key benefits associated with the use of ACBFS aggregate are resource conservation (reducing the need for natural aggregate) and reduction or elimination of solid waste. Despite these benefits, one must recognize that ACBFS aggregates are distinct, unique materials, possessing a number of characteristics and properties that must be considered during the design and construction process to ensure long-term performance.

Effective characterization of ACBFS aggregates during their production and throughout the design and construction process can help lead to their successful use in concrete pavements.

This course provides guidance on the use of ACBFS aggregates in concrete pavements. The course is intended for civil or transportation engineers who are interested in construction of concrete pavements.
