National Concrete Consortium Spotlights Concrete Patching Research

The National Concrete Consortium (NC2), in its latest NC2 E-News, focuses on concrete patching with its coverage of the Concrete Infrastructure Research Database of in-progress and recently completed research.

Maintained by the CP Tech Center, the database allows easy search of curated research related to concrete pavements and bridge decks across the US from the previous 5 years. Originally developed under the former CP Road Map, research included in the database is identified from the Transportation Research Board (TRB) list of Research in Progress (RiP), newsletters from across the concrete industry, and agency websites.

The current NC2 e-newsletter shows an example of available research based on the phrase “concrete pavement patching.” (See inset illustration.)

The database also includes recent research on a wide range of topics and is useful for agencies, engineers, and others with an interest in current pavement research.
