REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON RIGID PAVEMENT DESIGN

EXPERIMENTAL PAVEMENTS HAVE BEEN CONSTRUCTED IN 6 STATES AND ARE BEING OBSERVED TO STUDY THE JOINT SPACING IN CONCRETE PAVEMENTS. IN ADDITION, THE STRUCTURAL EFFICIENCY OF TRANSVERSE JOINTS OF WEAKENED-PLANE TYPE ARE BEING STUDIED. MEASUREMENTS AND OBSERVATIONS HAVE BEEN MADE OF (1) DAILY AND SEASONAL VARIATIONS IN TEMPERATURE; (2) DAILY, SEASONAL, AND PROGRESSIVE OR PERMANENT CHANGES IN THE WIDTHS OF THE EXPANSION AND CONTRACTION JOINTS; (3) CHANGES IN THE ELEVATION OF THE PAVEMENT, ESPECIALLY WITH RESPECT TO FAULTING AT THE JOINTS; AND (4) THE GENERAL CONDITION OF THE PAVEMENT AND JOINTS.
