Airport Best Practices for Progressive Design-Build Project Delivery

Progressive design-build (PDB) has proven to generate both time and cost savings on a number of major airport projects because its qualifications-based selection of the DB team, combined with a negotiated construction price reduces the time it takes airports to procure the DB contractor and reduces the contingencies buried in a typical DB lump sum price. An assembly of PDB best practices would provide the foundation for... more »

Implementation of Performance based Approach based on Emerging Test Methods to Formulate ASR Resistant Concrete Mixes

Based on extensive research supported by TxDOT and Bureau of Reclamation, two ASR test methods (i.e., a rapid aggregate chemical test called VCMD and an accelerated concrete cylinder test - ACCT) and a combined innovative approach with four recommended steps were developed for formulating performance-based alkali-silica reaction (ASR)ā€“resistant concrete mixes. This performance based approach has a great potential to formulate... more »
