Abstract:

A Research Quality Management System has been established to direct quality practices in research and testing in the Concrete Technology Division CTD of the Structures Laboratory at the US Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station. This system covers all aspects of research and test plans, standard and nonstandard test methods, data analysis, and documentation for projects undertaken within or contracted from the CTD. It describes implementation of the system among CTD staff, emphasizing calibration and verification of test equipment, training in quality assurance and standard practices, and documentation of these. It includes descriptions of systems for numbering research and test materials anspecimens, and guidelines for justified departures from the American Society for Testing and Materials ASTM or other standard practices. The use of such communication tools as Research and Technical Project Plans, nonconformance reports, and other standard forms of documentation are described. A glossary and examples of standard forms appear in Appendices.
