Abstract:

The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of parameters including the degree of slope, laying pattern, joint width, and thickness of paving block on the performance of concrete block pavement (CBP) on slopes. A laboratory-scale test was used to study these parameters based on a steel frame horizontal force and push in tests. Three different laying patterns and joint widths were used in the test program. The pavement responses are characterized in terms of the horizontal creep and deflection due to the applied load for half of an allowable single axle limit. The results indicate that herringbone 45° laying pattern and 3 mm joint width performed best on the slopes section. The 100 mm paver thickness is found to be more stable than 60 mm thickness from the aspect of horizontal force resistance. The results also indicate that the increase of the slope increases the horizontal creep, but decreases the pavement displacement.
