National Ready Mixed Concrete Association RMC issues reports

The RMC Research Foundation today announced the release of two important Prescriptive-to-Performance (P2P) research projects.

“Preparation of a Performance-based Specification for Cast-in-Place Concrete” includes a comprehensive review of worldwide performance-based specifications and recommendations for transitioning the industry toward their use. “Experimental Case Study Demonstrating Advantages of Performance Specifications” includes technical data from a side-by-side comparison of prescriptive concrete mixtures and performance-based mixtures.

The P2P Steering Committee and the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association’s (NRMCA) Research and Engineering Standards Committee, the group that has spearheaded the P2P movement, reviewed both projects.

Both reports are available at
