Abstract Volumes 1 and 2 of the R21 project present the state of the practice and guidelines for designing and constructing new composite pavements. Volume 1 provides the tools needed to design and construct new hot-mix asphalt (HMA) concrete over a portland cement concrete (PCC) composite pavement that takes full advantage of using differing materials. Volume 2 provides guidance on the design and construction of two-layer, wet-on-wet PCC pavements where the upper layer is a thin high-quality layer (hard nonpolishing aggregate, higher cement content, higher quality binder) and excellent surface characteristics with the lower layer containing a higher percentage of local aggregates and recycled materials. Both volumes detail performance data on existing composite pavement systems and provide step-by-step guidance on the design of composite pavements using mechanistic-empirical design methods for both types of new composite pavements.
