This report summarizes the investigations undertaken by the University of California Pavement Research center between 1998 and 2005 to assess Caltrans strategies for the construction of rigid pavements, specifically jointed plain concrete pavement. The overall objectives of the study are reviewed and the studies undertaken to meet these objectives, namely desktop studies and laboratory and full-scale experiment are discussed. The reports and recommendations from each study are listed, as well as some details on how the recommendations have been implemented.
