VOLUME CHANGES IN CONCRETE SLABS IN THE FIELD

OBSERVATIONS OF THE CHANGES IN VOLUME OF 14 CONCRETE SLABS, EACH 81 FEET LONG, 24 INCHES WIDE AND 6 INCHES THICK, EXPOSED OUT OF DOORS, ARE PRESENTED. THE PURPOSE OF THE TEST WAS PRIMARILY TO DETERMINE THE EFFECTS OF DIFFERENT CURING METHODS UPON VOLUME CHANGES. SEVEN CURING METHODS WERE USED. INTERESTING DATA WERE ALSO SECURED ON THE RELATIVE VOLUME CHANGES OF CONCRETE MADE WITH TWO DIFFERENT COARSE AGGREGATES. OBSERVATIONS FROM CRACK SURVEYS OF 2,380 MILES OF CONCRETE PAVEMENT SHOW CHARACTERISTIC DIFFERENCES IN VOLUME CHANGES OF CONCRETE MADE FROM DIFFERENT AGGREGATES. /AUTHOR/
