Real-Time Smoothness Measurements on Portland Cement Concrete Pavements During Construction
TRB’s second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP 2) Report S2-R06E-RR-1: Real-Time Smoothness Measurements on Portland Cement Concrete Pavements During Construction explores real-time smoothness measuring technologies for concrete paving.
For the purposes of the report, real-time smoothness refers to measuring and evaluating the concrete pavement surface profile during construction along the paving train while the concrete surface is still wet.
The report also includes draft suggested specifications and guidelines related to the use of technologies that allow paving crews to measure smoothness in real time.

The results of Renewal Project R06E were incorporated into an electronic repository for practitioners, known as the NDToolbox
, which provides information regarding recommended technologies for the detection of a particular deterioration. The NDToolbox was created by SHRP 2 Renewal Project R06A, which has released SHRP 2 Report S2-R06A-RR-1: Nondestructive Testing to Identify Concrete Bridge Deck Deterioration
that identifies nondestructive testing technologies for detecting and characterizing common forms of deterioration in concrete bridge decks.
Renewal Project R06E, which produced SHRP 2 Report S2-R06E-RR-1, is one of seven follow-on projects to SHRP Renewal Project R06 that produced SHRP 2 Report S2-R06-RW: A Plan for Developing High-Speed, Nondestructive Testing Procedures for Both Design Evaluation and Construction Inspection
, which examines existing and emerging nondestructive evaluation (NDE) technologies and their current state of implementation to satisfy the NDE needs for highway renewal.
