This paper descriptionbes the essential features of a comprehensive scheme for the rational application of quality control in road construction. Methods are developed to determine the optimum values, from economic considerations, of the sample size, the percentage defect associated with the acceptance limit. The relationship between gain and the degree of compliance is studied and the results are of interest to both the contractor and the client. The availability of the required cost data is also discussed.
