The Manual for Jointed Precast Concrete Pavement is a comprehensive technical manual describing jointed precast concrete pavement systems in detail and presenting a step-by-step guide that can be used by departments of transportation, system designers, precast concrete manufacturers, contractors, and inspectors. The manual includes dozens of technical illustrations, charts and photographs.
Well-designed PCP systems enable rapid replacement of concrete pavement with minimal impact on traffic flow and provide pavement that offers the potential for decades of service.
Published by the National Precast Concrete Association (NPCA) in conjunction with the Precast Concrete Paving Slabs Product Committee, the manual was written by Peter Smith, P.E., and Mark B. Snyder, Ph.D., P.E., both experts in jointed precast concrete pavement systems.
