Durable Next-Generation Concrete Specifications

Abstract

This poster goes over suggested performance metrics for GDOT in order to bring durability to the forefront of priorities alongside strength. The purpose of recommending the switch from prescriptive-based to performance-based specifications would be to decrease maintenance costs over time, as well as grant longer life spans. This poster also touches on how the suggested performance metrics and alterations to current limitations does not significantly lower strength characteristics or current durability metrics.
