4-4 What to Expect When You're Inspecting, Part 1: Before Concrete Arrives
This 20-minute video focuses on the inspector’s role prior to concrete placement. Using real-world situations, it covers everything the inspector needs to check before concrete arrives on the job site. Follow and hear from experienced inspectors as they attend pre-construction meetings and perform sub-grade, formwork, reinforcement and joint layout inspections on various residential and commercial projects. Learn from them as they describe actual field situations you might encounter and explain how they handled them.

4-5 What to Expect When You're Inspecting, Part 2: After Concrete Arrives
This 20-minute video goes over everything the inspector needs to check once concrete is delivered to the job site. Real-world situations focus on the inspector's role during concrete delivery, placement and finishing. Follow skilled inspectors on residential and commercial projects as they walk through some last minute checks and observe proper and improper placing, consolidation, finishing, jointing and curing techniques.

4-8 Fit To Be Tied
This video demonstrates dowel-bar retrofit and pavement grinding to provide load transfer and eliminate faults between pavement slabs. Criteria are given for bar type, spacing, position, and allowance for concrete expansion and contraction. Dowel installation is shown in some detail. The Washington project is the first large-scale retrofit project and preliminary results indicate success and life cycle cost effectiveness.

4-9 Introduction to Rehabilitation of Highway Concrete
This tape, the first in a series of five, outlines methods of concrete pavement repair including full depth repair of distressed joints, partial depth repair, bonded and unbonded concrete overlays, and fast-track mixes and methods. Bridge deck overlays and concrete mixes to reduce chloride infiltration are also reviewed.

4-11 Partial-Depth Repair of Concrete Pavement
This video demonstrates repair of spalls at joints and midsections of concrete pavements. Materials and procedures are shown for repair of damage limited to the upper third of the concrete slab. High early-strength concrete mixes are discussed, and the repair process is demonstrated. Tests are shown for deterioration and determination of repair boundaries. Surface preparation is demonstrated, including options for removal of joint material, cleaning, and application of a bonding agent to the repair site. Finally, placement and consolidation of the concrete, finishing, and curing procedures are presented.

4-12 Quality Control of Concrete Site
Covers verification of concrete quality procedures. Parts 1 & 2 include conventional quality control tests for testing concrete structures at the job site, such as sampling, temperature testing, slump, air content, unit weight and the making of cylinders and beams for compressive and flexural strength stress. Parts 3 & 4 involves new procedures for testing as-delivered concrete and as-placed concrete. As-delivered concrete involves water content measurement and thermal effects evaluation. As-placed concrete involves maturity monitoring, temperature-matched curing, pulse velocity testing and nuclear density testing.
