CRACK CONTROL IN CONCRETE BASES FOR SHEET ASPHALT PAVEMENT

AN EXPERIMENTAL ROAD WAS BUILT IN 1931. IT WAS A 46 FOOT PAVEMENT, TWO LANES WITH A PLAIN CONCRETE BASE ON ONE SIDE AND EXPERIMENTAL SECTIONS ON THE OTHER. THESE LATER SECTIONS CONTAINED MANY METHODS FOR USING WIRE MESH REINFORCEMENT, EXPANSION JOINTS AND DUMMY JOINTS TO CONTROL CRACKING IN A SIX INCH CONCRETE BASE. INDICATIONS OF SUCCESS OR FAILURE OF THE VARIOUS DESIGNS AFTER TWO YEARS OF TRAFFIC AND EXPOSURE WERE REPORTED AND RECOMMENDATIONS WERE MADE FOR FUTURE WORK BASED ON RESULTS OBTAINED TO DATE. /AUTHOR/
