There are too many people to thank for helping me with this book, but I will try anyway. To begin with, the members of American Concrete Institute Committees 325, Concrete Pavements, Committee 327, Roller Compacted Concrete Pavements, Committee 330, Concrete Parking Lots and Site Paving, and Committee 522, Pervious Concrete, have helped me considerably with discussions during committee meetings and over beers afterward.
James Shilstone, Sr. (Jim) and James Shilstone, Jr.(Jay) supplied material for Chapter 5, and Juan Pable Covarrubias supplied material for Chapter 9. Tim Smith of the Cement Association of Canada, Dale Crowl of the Ohio Department of Transportation, and George Palko of The Great Lakes Construction Company supplied photographs.
In addition to my colleagues, I’d like to thank my students in courses at Cleveland State University and at the University of Alabama at Birmingham over the years, because teaching them challenged me to research and synthesize the material. Finally, I need to thank my wife Lynn and our children, Isabella and Joe, for their patience while I was drafting this manuscript.
