Abstract : Field quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC) programs represent the most important step toward ensuring the construction of a successful project. However, in order for QA/QC programs to be implemented, a set of simple and yet effective tests must be available which can be conducted in the field during the construction process. The objective of this study was to investigate the available QA/QC programs for coal-tar emulsions and to further evaluate the ones that proved reliable. The research evaluated four different tests. Two of these tests were proven reliable and yet simple and were recommended for inclusion in a QA/QC program.
