Abstract: The materials of construction in use today have grown in number, increased in complexity, expanded in application and multiplied in utilization over those in use just a short time ago. Emerging from these complex and myriad changes has come a new definable practice of engineering within the discipline of civil engineering to develop, define and control the use of new products or new uses of old products. Contained in these proceedings are two papers which address aspects of quality assurance/quality control philosophy for advancing and nurturing concepts of quality in the constructed project. The other two papers address new or relatively new products of construction—use of shrinkage compensating concrete and a second generation of a new binder for flexible pavements.

Subject Headings: Construction materials | Quality control | Concrete construction | Shrinkage (material) | Concrete | Binders (material) | Asphalt pavements
