Abstract : A revolutionary program to help the U.S. construction industry improve productivity and regain its competitive edge nationally and internationally was begun in 1989 under the direction of the Assistant Secretary of the Army (Civil Works). The Construction Productivity Advancement Research (C PAR) Program is a cost- shared partnership among the Corps of Engineers and the U.S. construction industry, state and local governments, academic institutions, and other groups to facilitate research development and application of advanced technologies through cooperative research and development, field demonstrations, licensing agreements, and other forms of commercialization and technology transfer. Two important new Cooperative Research and Development Agreements (CRDA) for microtunneling and horizontal directional drilling are highlighted in this issue.
