This report, ""High Performance Construction Materials and Systems: An Essential Program for America and Its Infrastructure - Executive Report"" (Report No. 93-5011.E), provides a high-level, policy-oriented summary of the findings detailed in its companion volume, the ""Technical Report"" (Report No. 93-5011). As evident in the introductory letter addressed to President Clinton, the intended audience is the Administration of Congress, other national policy makers, and government and industry leaders. Initiated as a result of the 1991 National Civil Engineering Research Needs Forum organized by the Civil Engineering Research Foundation (CERF), this report builds a case for a national program aimed at exploiting the potential of high-performance concrete and steel for improving the competitiveness and quality of U.S. construction. While the report includes a synopsis of conclusions contained in the companion Technical Report, its main emphasis is on the potential benefits to be realized from such a national program. The report concludes with a call for active support, participation, and funding from government, industry, and academia in order to realize this critical national priority.
